AUSTIN, Texas – The Travis Central Appraisal District Board of Directors today confirmed Leana Mann as the District’s next Chief Appraiser.

Mann currently serves as the District’s Deputy Chief Appraiser. Having worked with the District since 2011, Mann has previously served as a staff accountant, Finance and Facilities Director, and Deputy Chief of Operations. She is a graduate of Texas State University and is a Certified Government Finance Officer (CGFO).

“I am excited for the opportunity to continue to serve Travis County taxpayers and ensure that our appraisals are equitable, accurate, and fair,” said Mann. “The District will remain committed to being accessible and transparent so that all residents have the support they need to navigate the property tax system.”

As Chief Appraiser, Mann will be responsible for managing more than 150 employees working toward appraising all property in Travis County at 100 percent of market value. Mann will succeed Chief Appraiser Marya Crigler, who will be retiring in early 2024 after more than thirty-three years with the District.
