Accounting director promoted in Milwaukie

City Manager Bill Monahan promoted Rina Byrne to Milwaukie’s finance director, effective April 9, after she had served as assistant finance director since February 2011.

“We spoke with some very qualified candidates,” Monahan said. “After considering our options for moving ahead building our financial team, we felt that Rina had the best combination of personal and professional skills to lead our Finance Department.”

The city will advertise for an assistant finance director immediately and will continue to have West Linn’s finance staff available on a modified basis to assist during the transition and through the budget cycle next year. The city has been sharing West Linn’s Finance Director services since February 2011. With the assistance of West Linn’s Richard Seals and Casey Camors, the city converted to a biennial budget. Milwaukie is currently within the first year of its biennial budget process.

Byrne is credited with a major role in streamlining the city’s accounting practices and improving the budget process. Before coming to Milwaukie, she was a senior manager at Talbot, Korvola & Warwick in Portland for about six years, where she supervised staff in the performance of audits and other financial reviews for small to medium-sized governmental and not-for-profit organizations. She is a certified public accountant, a licensed municipal auditor, and a certified fraud examiner, and has a higher national diploma in accounting from Glasgow Caledonian in Scotland.
