Loudoun County Administrator Tim Hemstreet announced today that Janet Romanchyk has been appointed chief financial officer (CFO) for Loudoun County and director of the Department of Finance and Budget effective immediately. Romanchyk has recently been serving as acting CFO and acting director of the Department of Finance and Budget, having previously served as deputy CFO and deputy director of the department since 2019.
“Janet brings both expertise and a deep history with the county to her new position as CFO,” said Hemstreet. “During her career with Loudoun County, she has played a vital role in many of our most important financial transactions and is committed to maintaining fiscal responsibility and stewardship of tax dollars.”
As Loudoun County CFO, Romanchyk will oversee the county’s financial strategy and operations under the direction of the county administrator and guidance of the Board of Supervisors. In addition, she will oversee the planning, directing, coordinating and supervising of the county’s budgeting, capital improvement planning, long-term financial planning, accounting, auditing, cash flow, capital financing, payroll and procurement.
Romanchyk joined the Loudoun County government as the controller in 2011. She was appointed director of what was then the Department of Finance and Procurement in 2017. That department merged with the Department of Management and Budget to become the current Department of Finance and Budget in 2019.
Prior to coming to Loudoun County, Romanchyk was a budget analyst for the Fauquier County school system before moving to the Fauquier County government as assistant finance director in 2004 and becoming finance director in 2009. Previous to that, she was the financial manager for Oswego County Opportunities, a nonprofit organization, in Fulton, New York.
Romanchyk received a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Empire State College in New York; a bachelor’s degree in public justice from the State University of New York at Oswego, New York; and a master’s in public administration from George Mason University.
