Sedgwick County is making a leadership change in its finance division. Chris Chronis is no longer the chief financial officer.

A county spokesperson says Lindsay Poe Rousseau was appointed as interim CFO Thursday. She was the county’s budget director.

No other details were released.

The change comes about two months after the county reported fraudulent activity that resulted in the loss of $566,000. The FBI is investigating that incident.

The finance division is responsible for all aspects of the county’s financial management with the exception of property tax administration.

“We want to assure all of our vendors and customers that regular business will continue as usual during this transition and that they will continue to receive customer service from the Sedgwick County Finance Department," County spokeswoman Kate Flavin said in a statement.

According to the 2017 budget, the chief financial officer earns about $146,000 a year. The chief financial officer provides administrative oversight to the operations of the finance department, and is accountable for all strategic and tactical planning for county financial management.
