Ohio Office of Budget and Management

Timothy S. Keen became Director of the Office of Budget and Management (OBM) on January 10, 2011, bringing more than 25 years of fiscal management and public policy expertise to his responsibilities as Governor John Kasich’s chief financial officer. This is the second time he has held this position, leading the cabinet-level agency that provides financial management and policy analysis to help ensure the responsible use of state resources.

From 2007 through 2010, Director Keen was Senior Policy Advisor to Auditor of State Mary Taylor, following his previous service with OBM as Assistant Director and then as Director with the administration of Governor Bob Taft from 1999 through 2006. Earlier he was Deputy Director of Policy Development at OBM, including service as President of the State Controlling Board (1992-1993). His career in public service, beginning in 1986 as a Budget Analyst with the Ohio Legislative Budget Office, also includes senior budget policy positions with both houses of the Ohio General Assembly.

Director Keen received an undergraduate degree in communications from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and holds a master’s degree in public policy from the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University.
