Steven Botelho, Sarasota County's chief financial management officer, will take over as Sarasota County's assistant county administrator on Monday.

Sarasota County Administrator Thomas Harmer announced the appointment during a county budget workshop Friday.

"Steve continues to be a strong asset to the leadership team and has a great understanding of the internal operations of the county. He has also worked hard to develop a positive work environment in his department," Harmer said in a statement.

Botelho will continue to serve as Sarasota County's chief financial management officer, a position he's held since 2012, overseeing the Office of Financial Management, its staff and the county's budget process and planning. In his new role, he will also oversee the county's information technology and human resources services.

"I am excited to work with Steve as part of the executive team," Harmer added.

Botelho joined Sarasota County Government in 2005 as a financial analyst and later became the budget director.

Botelho and his wife, a Sarasota County native, have two daughters.
