Joe Kroboth has been appointed as an Assistant Loudoun County Administrator, Loudoun County Administrator Tim Hemstreet announced Tuesday.
Kroboth has had a lead role in the county’s capital construction and transportation infrastructure development since becoming director of the Department of Transportation and Capital Infrastructure (DTCI) in 2013. Most recently, he has been serving as interim director of the Department of Planning and Zoning.
“Joe is a proven leader who has demonstrated exceptional ability during his time with the county,” said Hemstreet. “I believe his broad knowledge of local government, vast experience, and outstanding leadership skills will serve the county well in his new role as a key member of my senior management team.”
As the director of DTCI, Kroboth has overseen the planning, land acquisition, design, and construction management of dozens of public infrastructure projects; has implemented the policies of the Countywide Transportation Plan; overseen the Loudoun Transit system; coordinated with outside agencies on the design and construction of the Metrorail Silver Line extension to Loudoun and coordinated the planning and programming of transportation improvement funding through various regional and state partners. Kroboth’s prior experience also includes a number of positions with the city of Hagerstown, Md. and Washington County, Md., including director of Public Works and director of Fire and Emergency Services in Washington County.
Kroboth holds a master’s degree in business administration from Frostburg State University and a bachelor’s degree in civil and structural engineering from the University of Maryland.
In his new position, Kroboth will join the other members of the Office of the County Administrator in directing and supervising the day-to-day operations of all Loudoun County departments and agencies that are under the direct control of the Board of Supervisors. The Assistant County Administrator position became available earlier this year when Assistant County Administrator John Sandy was appointed as the county’s Chief Financial Officer.
The Office of the County Administrator is the highest-level management office of the Loudoun County government and also serves as the Board of Supervisors’ official liaison to the constitutional officers, the judiciary, and state and regional agencies.
