City hires new finance director

Current director will retire at the end of July

The City and Borough of Juneau announced Tuesday that Jeff Rogers will replace Bob Bartholomew as the Finance Director. Rogers will start in March, and Bartholomew will retire at the end of July.

Rogers currently works for the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation as the Administrative Services Director. In that role, he serves on DEC’s executive team; directs DEC’s accounting, information technology and human resources programs; develops the department’s annual budget; and oversees a team of 48. Before he was the Administrative Services Director, he was the Divisions Operations Manager and Budget Manager.

City Manager Rorie Watt said he’s excited to bring Rogers on as part of CBJ’s team.

“His enthusiasm and drive are going to be great fits for the CBJ,” Watt said. “The Finance Department is a big and complicated part of the organization and I really look forward to Jeff’s skills.”

Rogers graduated with a Master of Fine Arts degree from Yale University in 2007. Afterward, he worked in business administration for the university while studying at the Yale School of Management. In 2009, he accepted a position as the Managing Director of Perseverance Theatre before becoming an aide to the Alaska Senate Finance Committee in 2010.

Rogers will earn an annual salary of $134,555.
