County Announces Finance Head Retirement

Albemarle County is announcing the retirement of Richard Wiggans, Director of Finance, effective February 1, 2011.   Wiggans was appointed Finance Director for the County in May of 2004.  Before being employed by the County, he held budget and finance positions for three Texas cities (Cedar Park, Arlington, and Dallas) for twenty-two years.  He also worked as a government management consultant for Arthur Andersen & Co. and as a government instructor for a community college.  He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Government and Economics from the University of Texas, Austin and a Masters degree in Public Administration from the LBJ School of Public Affairs, University of Texas, Austin.

“Richard has provided strong leadership for our financial operations during his tenure, and his expertise has been particularly critical in recent challenging economic times,” said County Executive Bob Tucker in announcing the retirement.  “The fact that the County has achieved a AAA bond rating from Standard & Poor’s while he was our Director of Finance is a strong indicator of the quality of his service to the County.”
