Commissioners Mull Two Finalists For County Manager Position

HENRY COUNTY, GA – March 10, 2017 -- The Henry County Board of Commissioners has pared down the list of applicants for the County Manager position and has named the two finalists after interviews took place on March 8, 2017. The county manager search was conducted by the Henry County Human Resources Department and initially attracted 15 applicants for the position. The two candidates under consideration are Cheri Hobson-Matthews and Patrick J. O’Connor.

Cheri Hobson-Matthews, from McDonough, GA, is currently the Assistant County Manager for Henry County and earned her Master’s of Urban and Regional Planning and her Bachelor of Science Degree in Community Planning and Urban Studies, both from Alabama A&M University. She has been with Henry County Government for the past 15 years, and as Assistant County Manager is responsible for overseeing the management of approximately 1,700 employees. Hobson-Matthews began her career in Henry County Government as a Planner II in the Planning and Zoning Department, moving up the ranks to Planning and Zoning Director, then becoming a Division Director. In 2014 Hobson-Matthews was promoted to the role of Assistant County Manager and during her tenure, also served as Interim County Manager. In her role as Assistant County Manager, she has assisted with the preparation and administration of a $137 million budget, as well as aided in planning, managing and directing the activities of the county government and its various departments.

Patrick J. O’Connor, from Atlanta, GA, holds both a CPA and CPFO (Certified Public Finance Officer) designation, and earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Finance and Accounting from the University of Connecticut. With more than 30 years of experience in city and county government, O’Connor most recently served as Interim County Manager for Fulton County Government where he oversaw the daily operations of county government and more than 5,500 employees. Prior to that post, he served as Finance Director for Fulton County from 1996 to 2014 and was responsible for the administration of an operating and capital budget of nearly $1 billion. Prior to his tenure with Fulton County, he previously served as the Finance Commissioner for the City of Stamford, CT, the Finance Director in Staunton, VA and the Assistant County Manager/Finance Director in Statesville, NC.

The Henry County Board of Commissioners expects to make its final decision after the required 14-day waiting period.
