29 January 2018


The Peralta Colleges is pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Romaneir Johnson to the position of Vice Chancellor of Finance and Administration for the four-college district that includes Berkeley City College, College of Alameda and Laney and Merritt colleges in Oakland.


Of her new appointment, Ms. Johnson says: “As I approach a new and exciting opportunity to serve Peralta Community College District constituents, a quote from Alan Greenspan comes to mind: ‘It has been my experience that competency in mathematics, both in numerical manipulations and in understanding its conceptual foundations (accounting), enhances a person’s ability to handle the more ambiguous and qualitative relationships that dominate our day-to-day financial decision-making.’”


Romaneir Johnson was the State of Michigan’s Executive Director of the Financial Review Commission (FRC), which provides financial oversight of the city of Detroit’s finances. She was appointed by the Treasurer of the State of Michigan to implement programs pursuant to Public Act 181 of 2014. In part, Ms. Johnson oversees the finances of the Detroit Public Schools Community District in order to help ensure that the District is in compliance with applicable legislative statutes and administrative policies.


Prior to becoming Executive Director of the FRC, Romaneir has held a myriad of roles that range from Director of Finance to Chief Financial Officer. She has many years of experience in challenging times strategically leading deficit districts from K-12, Universities, and Community Colleges to becoming fiscally sound through budget cuts, budget realignment and negotiation of contracts. She has extensive experience leading teams of highly experienced financial professionals that were responsible for ensuring proficient financial reporting, compliance with regulatory standards and regulations; production of accurate and timely financial statements, and the creation of various revenue and budget reports..


Romaneir earned a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of Michigan, Dearborn, and a Master’s degree in Accounting from the Davenport University.
