by | Jan 13, 2017 | Downtown Living


Earlier this week, the Battery Park City Authority announced the appointment of Janet Ozarchuk as Chief Financial Officer / Treasurer, a role responsible for financing, accounting, financial controls, compliance, auditing (in coordination with independent public accountants and internal auditors), budgeting, payroll, all financial reporting, accounting/financial MIS reporting systems, investments, and cash flow.

Ms. Ozarchuk, who will serve on the BPCA Executive Team and lead its 11-person Finance Department, will also manage relationships with outside consultants, advisors, managing agents, and credit ratings agencies. In addition, she will oversee the budget of Battery Park City Parks — a 501 c (3) entity — and be responsible for ensuring the annual required tax filings are completed and submitted in compliance with all laws and regulations.

“We are pleased to welcome Janet to BPCA and the Battery Park City community,” said BPCA President and Chief Operating Officer Shari C. Hyman. “With her extensive background in real estate, municipal debt, and non-profit finance, she comes to the position ready to advise on, lead, and develop sound, innovative financial management practices that are rigorous and add value to the Authority and for its stakeholders. We’re excited to have Janet guide BPCA’s financial posture for the years to come.”

Janet Ozarchuk added: “BPCA is clearly one of the great public-private partnerships in urban development, and this role presents an especially exciting opportunity to bring my private and non-profit sector experience to bear in the public service. I have long wanted to serve in government, and I can think of no greater privilege than to continue the stewardship and growth of the extraordinary endeavor that is Battery Park City.”

Born and raised in Maspeth, Queens, Ms. Ozarchuk holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and General Science from Fordham University, and a Master in Business Administration from Harvard University with an emphasis on finance and organizational behavior. Ms. Ozarchuk succeeds BPCA’s long-serving CFO Robert Serpico, who retired in November 2016.
