John Vithoulkas has worked for Henrico since 1997 as a budget analyst, budget director, finance director and deputy county manager for administration, as well as special economic adviser to the county manager.  Before coming to Henrico, he worked as a police planner and then assistant budget director in Gaston County, N.C.  He also served as a lead budget analyst in Chesterfield County.  After leaving Chesterfield County in 1997, John came to Henrico as Budget Analyst.  He was promoted to Budget Director in 1999 and, in 2007, was promoted to Finance Director.  With his experience and knowledge of the county’s budget, he became a Special Economic Adviser to the County Manager in 2009 and then Deputy County Manager two years later.  In January of 2013, John’s vast experience as budget and finance director culminated with his appointment to the position of County Manager, overseeing a budget of $1.1 billion.  Mr.  Vithoulkas was born in Athens, Greece and grew up right here in Henrico and attended J.R.  Tucker High School.  He received his Bachelor’s degree from Virginia Commonwealth University and master’s degree from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.  John and his wife live in Glen Allen with their three children, 2 of which attend Virginia colleges.

As an added bonus Jeff Fitch, last month’s speaker and Sales Manager for the PGA TOUR Champions and the Dominion Energy Charity Classic, has donated 2 grounds passes to the Dominion Energy Charity Classic golf tournament at the Country Club of Virginia’s James River Course to be raffled off at this month’s breakfast!
