Ramras will succeed CFO Lloyd Tyler, who passed away unexpectedly last October.

Ramras has 19 years of progressively responsible finance experience with state and local government, including 12 years with the city of Vancouver. She served as the city’s deputy finance director of budget, performance and audit for the last four years.

“I am thrilled to accept this appointment and will strive to honor the legacy of my predecessor and friend, Lloyd Tyler,” Ramras said. “I am excited about the future of our city and look forward to meeting the challenges and discovering the opportunities that present themselves as we continue to grow, evolve and strive for greatness.”

As the city’s CFO, Ramras will manage the Financial and Management Services Department, which is responsible for the city budget, procurement services, business and special licenses, employee payroll, audit and performance. She will be responsible for establishing finance operational strategies by analyzing economic trends and revenue opportunities, monitoring the city’s financial performance, developing financial forecasts, developing improvements and providing financial guidance and advice to Vancouver City Council, the city manager and departments.

“Natasha has proven herself to be a dynamic and strategic leader with an excellent track record managing the City’s budget and financial performance,” said Vancouver City Manager Eric Holmes. “She has excelled while serving as the city’s interim CFO for the past three months and I look forward to working with her in this new leadership role.”
