Today, the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners appointed David “Beau” Boisvert as Director of Appraisal Operations for Johnson County Government, effective Nov. 14 through June 30, 2021. Boisvert has nearly 25 years of appraisal experience and comes to Johnson County from the Yavapai County Assessor’s Office in Prescott, Arizona, where he has served as the Chief Deputy for nearly three years. During his career, he spent 11 years in the Maricopa County (Arizona) Assessor’s Office, including three years as Chief Appraiser.
“The board was impressed with Mr. Boisvert’s experience in such a large county as Maricopa, where he led a staff of 190 and oversaw the valuation of 1.6 million parcels, about eight times the number of parcels in Johnson County,” said Chairman Ed Eilert, Johnson County BOCC. “In addition to Maricopa and Yavapai counties, cities and counties have hired him as a consultant to improve their business practices. He has a track record of operating efficiently with set policies and state requirements.”
Former Johnson County Appraiser Paul Welcome retired from the county in June 2019. Jeff Holsapple is the Interim County Appraiser and will fulfill that role until Boisvert completes the Kansas Department of Revenue’s Property Valuation Division’s requirements. Boisvert will run the office and manage the team, while Holsapple will handle the statutorily required duties of the Appraiser’s Office until Boisvert meets the state’s requirements to fulfill all duties of County Appraiser.
“I am looking forward to being part of the Johnson County leadership and working with the staff in the Appraiser’s Office,” said Boisvert. “I am very excited about this next adventure.”
Boisvert joined Yavapai County in 1995 as a Records Technician. He served several positions there, including five years as Land Supervisor. In 2005, he took a job as Land Team Leader with Maricopa County. He served in several positions before becoming Chief Appraiser there in 2013. Boisvert has been the Chief Deputy at the Yavapai County Assessor’s Office since January 2017.
Boisvert has years of teaching experience, including serving as a guest speaker for “Introduction to Real Estate” on GIS Systems at Yavapai College from 1998 – 2003, and providing training on assessment/appraisal topics annually to the Arizona State Board of Equalization from 2008 - 2016. He received the Outstanding Public Servant Award from the State Bar of Arizona in 2014.
