The Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors named Joseph P. Casey as the next county administrator last week at an afternoon press conference. Casey, currently the deputy county manager for administration for Henrico County, will begin his new position July 1.
Casey will fill the position of retiring County Administrator James J.L. Stegmaier. Casey has served Henrico County as deputy county manager since 2013. Prior to that, he served Hanover County since 1990, in roles including deputy county administrator and finance director. He has a doctorate degree in public policy and administration from Virginia Commonwealth University, as well as a master’s degree in public administration from VCU and a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the University of Richmond. Casey is a certified public accountant.
“I want to thank the Board of Supervisors for their confidence in me and recognize the collective efforts of their time and dedication in recruiting and selecting this position,” Casey said. “Their commitment to serving the citizens and businesses of Chesterfield in a cooperative, customer service-oriented manner was a major factor in my decision to apply.”
“We are excited as we move forward in the announcement of our new county administrator,” said Leslie Haley, Midlothian District Supervisor. “Mr. Casey comes to us with an impressive background of knowledge, accomplishment and government service. This board has full confidence that Mr. Casey will work with our staff to continue to elevate Chesterfield County as a premier community.”
Casey and his wife Suzanne have three sons, Harrison, Patrick and Jack.
