Vithoulkas named deputy county manager
Henrico County Finance Director John A. Vithoulkas has been appointed as a deputy county manager for administration, effective Dec. 17. Henrico County Manager Virgil Hazelett made the announcement Nov. 28.
Vithoulkas, who currently also currently serves as special economic advisor to the county manager, will succeed Leon T. Johnson, who is retiring after more than 16 years in the position.
As deputy county manager for Administration, Vithoulkas will have direct responsibilities over the departments of Finance, General Services and Information Technology and the Henrico County Public Library system — agencies totaling more than 550 full-time personnel with combined budgets of approximately $56.9 million. He also will

A Henrico employee since 1997, Vithoulkas began his county career as a budget analyst and also served as Finance division director and budget director before being appointed director of the Department of Finance in January 2008. He was named special economic advisor to the county manager in September 2009.
A graduate of Henrico’s J.R. Tucker High School, Vithoulkas earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Virginia Commonwealth University and received a master’s degree in public administration from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He is a member of the Government Finance Officers Association, the Virginia Local Government Manager’s Association, the Richmond Association of Business Economists and the Treasurer’s Association of Virginia.
