Leander ISD is pleased to welcome Jeremy Trimble to the role of Chief Operations Officer after the Board approved the hiring Thursday night.

“Jeremy is a proud product of Leander ISD, having attended his whole K-12 career in our district and graduating from Leander High School,” Superintendent Bruce Gearing, Ed.D., said. “With experience working in our operations department from 2010–2015 and then as the Assistant Superintendent for Operations and Planning in Eanes ISD, Jeremy brings educational leadership and a reputation for innovation and strategic visioning to our team.”

Trimble has served as Assistant Superintendent of Operations and Planning in Eanes ISD since 2015, providing support leadership in high level operations departments including bond and construction services, child nutrition services, facility management and more. He first served LISD as Assistant Director of Facilities in 2010, before becoming the district’s Executive Director of Support Services in 2013. Prior to those roles, Trimble owned and operated his own construction firm, JT Custom Builders.

“I am excited to be returning to the Leander ISD family as Chief Operations Officer,” Trimble said. “I look forward to collaborating with the Board, Dr. Gearing, staff and the entire community to support our shared vision for educational excellence and ensure that our operations team supports that commitment.”

Trimble completed both his bachelor’s degree in environmental design and Master of Architecture at Texas A&M University. He served as co-chair for LISD’s 2021 Bond Steering Committee, and currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO).

“I am confident that Mr. Trimble will continue to build trust and inspire confidence through exercising transparency, integrity and empathy with colleagues, staff and community members,” Gearing said. “I look forward to working alongside Jeremy as we lead #1LISD to new levels of excellence.”

Trimble will replace long-time Chief of Operations Jimmy Disler, who will be retiring later this year.
