Bob Bartholomew – former Chief Operating Officer of the Alaska Permanent Fund Corporation – will be the City and Borough of Juneau’s new Finance Director, starting in June.
Current Finance Director Craig Duncan made his long-expected retirement official today (Wednesday), though he will remain on the job through May 31st to see the city through one more budget cycle.
Bartholomew has held various jobs at the State of Alaska, including six years as COO of the Permanent Fund, and five as Assistant Director of the Department of Revenue’s Tax Division. He recently spent three years under contract to the CBJ as project manager for a computer system upgrade and transition.
Duncan has worked at the city for 30 years, the last 20 as Finance Director. He announced his intention to retire last fall.
