The City and Borough of Juneau is pleased to announce that Jeff Rogers will lead the Finance Department as its next Director. Rogers will join CBJ March 18 and take over after current director Bob Bartholomew retires at the end of July.

Rogers holds a top position within the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation as its Administrative Services Director. In this 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. Within DEC, Rogers has previously held the positions of Divisions Operations Manager and Budget Manager.

“I’m thrilled to be joining CBJ. Juneau is my home. I live here, I play here, I fell in love here. Working for the State has been so rewarding, but my transition to CBJ feels like a homecoming. I’m most excited to work with the Assembly and CBJ’s dynamic staff to solve problems and to continue building the community we all want to live in,” Rogers said.

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. The Finance Department is a big and complicated part of the organization and I really look forward to Jeff’s skills,” he said.

Rogers completed a Master of Fine Arts degree at 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.
