Rich Gianni of Cary was appointed to the Wake County Board of Commissioners on Monday.

The board unanimously voted to appoint Gianni, who will complete Tony Gurley’s term. Gurley resigned from the board in February to become chief operating officer of the Office of State Budget and Management.

Gianni will take his seat on the board on April 21. Gianni, a Republican, is running for the District 3 seat in the fall election.

He works as chief financial officer for Ziptronix, a Raleigh semiconductor company, and says his budget and cash management experience will help him guide the county’s use of tax money. Gianni lives in Cary with his wife and youngest child.
