Bloomingdale Park District announces new director of finance
Bloomingdale Park District announced today that Antonio Washington has been named the new director of finance. Washington replaces June Fergus, who is retiring in July after seven years of service.
“We are sad to see June go after so many years of valuable service to the Bloomingdale Park District,” said Bloomingdale Park District Executive Director Joe Potts. “But at the same time, we’re excited to have someone as qualified and talented as Antonio on board. He will be a great addition to the leadership team at the BPD.”
Washington previously served as the superintendent of finance and human resources at Oakbrook Terrace Park District (2015-2021). He also has spent time as an external auditor associate at Grant Thornton LLP (2010-2011) and a tax professional at H&R Block (2014).
Washington holds a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Northern Illinois University, a bachelor’s degree in recreational management from Chicago State University, and a master’s degree in financial management from Benedictine University. He is a certified park and recreational professional (CPRP) and currently resides in Chicago with his wife, Tenisha, and their daughter, Nia.
