Montgomery County announced Monday that L. Carol Edmonds retired as deputy county administrator on Dec. 31, 2020, and Angela M. Hill has been promoted to the dual positions of assistant county administrator and chief financial officer.
After working in the public sector for 42 years, Edmonds began working for Montgomery County in 1994 as the director of financial and management services. She served as interim county administrator in 2009 and was promoted to deputy county administrator in 2012
“Carol’s strong work ethic, dedication and strategic thinking will be greatly missed,” said County Administrator Craig Meadows. “However, she has worked extremely hard as a public servant for over four decades and leaves a lasting legacy for both the employees and citizens of Montgomery County. We all congratulate Carol on her retirement, and wish her all the best.”
Angela M. Hill, who most recently served the county as director of finance and chief financial officer, has been promoted to assistant county administrator/chief financial officer. Hill joined Montgomery County in October 1997 as director of financial and management services. Prior to joining the county, she worked as an auditor at Brown Edwards & Company, LLP., a regional certified public accounting firm, where she specialized in governmental audits.
“Angie will lead the departments formerly managed by Carol prior to her retirement,” said Meadows. “Angie brings more than two decades of experience in Montgomery County to her new role. I am confident she will continue her excellent work for the county and will continue Carol’s legacy of fiscal management and planning.”
Lisa Rayne, assistant director of finance, will serve as interim financial services director while the county conducts a national recruitment for a new director of finance.
