Patrick Nichting

City Treasurer, Patrick Nichting, is a lifelong Peorian. He was raised in North Peoria and attended Richwoods High School. He then continued his education at Bradley University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science in 1986 and a Masters in Business Administration in 1991.

For 28 years, Patrick was the President and CEO of Panco Food Service Equipment Corporation. He has been actively involved throughout his career in serving on numerous City Boards and non-profit boards, including Salvation Army, Boys and Girls Club and the Knights of Columbus. Patrick was first elected in 1997 as the City of Peoria’s 5th District Councilman and served in that capacity until 2009 when he was elected to his current position as City Treasurer.

Patrick has since modernized the Treasurer’s office through the transformation of manual processes to electronic processes. He continues to research and integrate new technology to ensure that the citizens and businesses in our community receive the most efficient, effective and friendly service.  In 2012, the City of Peoria’s investment policy was recognized by The United States and Canada Treasurers Association with a certificate of excellence. In addition to Treasurer, Patrick is also the Township Tax Collector, Treasurer of both the Peoria Police and Peoria Firemen’s Pension Boards.  Patrick is completing his first term as Treasurer and is looking forward to continued service in his next term.
