ISLE OF WIGHT—The School Board of Isle of Wight County appointed county supervisor Phillip Bradshaw as the new Chief Financial Officer Wednesday, effective immediately.

Bradshaw brings 30 years of business experience to the school division, working for more than 20 years with International Paper in Isle of Wight County. He most recently served as regional accounting manager for Mastec Inc. based in Miami.

Bradshaw received his bachelor’s degree in accounting, as well as his master’s degree in business administration from Old Dominion University.

“The chief financial officer position is a key position in the school division, especially now as we navigate new economic conditions,” said Dr. Michael McPherson, division superintendent. “Mr. Bradshaw’s knowledge of financial operations, the division’s finances, and the county’s resources will ensure a seamless transition as we develop next year’s budget.”
