Richmond CFO Black leaving next week
- November 11, 2008
Richmond chief financial officer Harry E. Black will leave the city Nov. 21 for a job in the private sector in Richmond.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported in early September that he was looking for another job. He confirmed his departure yesterday in a column for Mayor L. Douglas Wilder’s “Visions” online newsletter.
Black is the city’s first CFO, a position created by Wilder to oversee the city’s collection of taxes, fees and fines as well as its borrowing and budgeting. Black also supervises the officials who manage the city’s bank accounts.
Wilder’s term ends Dec. 31. He will be replaced as mayor by Dwight Clinton Jones.
Black came to the city after working as a vice president of McKissack & McKissack, a Washington-based design, engineering and program management firm. Previously, he was a finance executive for several agencies of the District of Columbia and the New York State Insurance Fund.
