Sherry Brown has been named the new director of Palm Beach County’s Office of Financial Management and Budget.
Brown had served as an assistant budget director under Liz Bloeser, who retired last week.
County Administrator Verdenia Baker said she selected Brown for the job after conducting an internal search. Baker praised Brown’s expertise in budgeting, debt management, strategic planning and labor contract negotiating. Brown has helped with planning for a proposed increase in the county’s sales tax.
Commissioners confirmed Brown’s promotion during today’s meeting.
