Granville gets new finance director
OXFORD — Steve McNally won’t have to move far to assume his new position. A couple of blocks, at most.
On Monday, Granville County announced the appointment of McNally as county finance director. He is currently serving as finance officer for the City of Oxford.
McNally received a bachelor of science degree in accounting and a master of business administration in finance from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, better known as Virginia Tech. He also earned a bachelor’s degree in computer information systems from N.C. Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount.
In announcing the appointment, Granville County Manager Mike Felts said McNally has excellent educational and professional credentials and added, “He has a lot of knowledge of the local area.”
The search for a new county finance director began in July after Mike Felts moved from that position to the post of county manager.
The county received 10 applications for the position, Felts said. After narrowing the list to five, he and Human Resources Director Justin Ayscue conducted interviews.
“They were all well qualified, all actively engaged in local government finance,” Felts said.
Two finalists were selected for second interviews, which were conducted by Felts, Ayscue and two members of the board of commissioners.
McNally has served as finance office for Oxford for nine years. Before taking that position, he had over 12 years of experience in the private sector.
He and his wife, Debra, live in Vance County.
He will begin his work with Granville County on Sept. 16.
