Mark Abbo named fiscal director for county commission

Mark Abbo is returning to Wayne County government as fiscal director for the Wayne County Commission. His appointment was announced this week by commission Chairman Gary Woronchak (D-Dearborn) and will be effective Dec. 5.

In his new position, he will assist Wayne County’s 15 commissioners as they provide fiscal oversight of the county’s $1.48 billion budget and ensure that county tax dollars are spent efficiently and effectively.

“Mark is an excellent fit for the position as he not only brings a wealth of experience in all aspects of financial management and oversight, but is keenly aware of the fiscal challenges the county faces,” Chairman Woronchak said.

“I am honored to once again be serving the residents of Wayne County, especially in monitoring how their hard-earned tax dollars are spent,” Abbo said. “Wayne County commissioners have always performed their due diligence regarding financial matters and I intend to keep them fully informed on all future fiscal items.”

Abbo was the county’s chief financial officer from November 2013 to December 2014, reporting to the county executive.

Before that, he served for 12 years as Northville Township supervisor. He also has more than 35 years of private sector experience in numerous financial capacities.

Abbo is a certified public accountant and holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Eastern Michigan University.
