Samuel Schudmak, III, was appointed as a member of the Jefferson Parish Finance Authority (Authority), which is a public trust that provides financing for the purchase of single family residential homes. The independent Board of Trustees governs the Authority.

Mr. Schudmak is also the co-owner of Bed Liners of Metairie, LLC d/b/a Rhino Linings of Metairie.
