Ed Kilcullen, who has served as Georgetown County’s accounting manager for more than a decade, was announced today as the Finance Department’s new director. Kilcullen will replace Scott Proctor, who will retire on Jan. 31. Proctor has been the county’s Finance Director since 2004.
Kilcullen joined Georgetown County’s finance team in 2009. He is a Certified Public Accountant and a Certified Internal Auditor with substantial experience in governmental accounting. Prior to coming to work for the county, he worked on the finance teams of the Medical University of South Carolina and the City of Charleston, among others, and was Deputy Finance Director for Berkeley County.
“Ed is an excellent fit for this position, and I believe that with his institutional knowledges of our processes, software and our people, this transition will go very smoothly,” said County Administrator Sel Hemingway.
Kilcullen will begin training with Proctor to take over as director next week. He said Finance staff will use the remainder of this month to finish up on projects already under way. Kilcullen will begin looking at vision and direction for the department in February.
