Finance director resigns after five days on job
Kendra Brown, whose first day on the job as Aiken County finance director was Oct. 22, has resigned.
County Administrator Clay Killian said Brown tendered her resignation to him on Wednesday due to personal issues. He declined to elaborate on what those issues were.
"We're disappointed she couldn't stay. We wish her the best," he said.
Brown was hired a few weeks ago to fill the position former finance director Terry Bodiford vacated upon his retirement.
Brown recently served as assistant county administrator for administrative services and finance for Oconee County. She also served as interim county administrator for a period of time in Oconee County. Prior to that, she was an accountant in the finance department in Pickens County and also served as an internal auditor at Clemson University.
Killian said he has sent an email to each County Council member informing them of Brown's resignation. He talked to Chairman Ronnie Young personally.
"I am very disappointed that did not work out, because it's such an important position," Young said.
The position of finance director has been vacant for roughly 16 months since Bodiford's retirement.
Killian said he will review again the approximately nine resumes he and staff received when interviewing for the job before.
"We will probably not advertise the job immediately, if at all," he said, noting that a candidate might be selected through a non-traditional recruiting process. "In the meantime, the deputy finance director is plugging along."
