Marc Larkins will take over as comptroller and Christopher Porrino will become the next chief counsel, Gov. Chris Christie announced Thursday afternoon.
The moves are latest changes to Christie's administration as he gears up for a second term.
Current Comptroller Matthew Boxer said he would be stepping down from his post at the end of his six-year term next month, electing to not seek another term. Boxer says he intends on returning to the private-sector.
"It has been an extremely rewarding six years for me," Boxer said.
Larkins currently serves as the CEO of the state Schools Development Authority.
Christie said he expects Larkins to "do what Matt has set the tradition of doing" in the office.
Porrino, the director of the state Division of Law in the Office of the Attorney General, will be replacing Charles McKenna, who is leaving to serve as the executive director of the SDA.
