Town Manager Finalist Candidates

Avon Town Manager Search Narrows to Two Candidates


The Avon Town Council is pleased to announce two town manager candidates as Finalists, including:

Mike Mallinoff, currently County Administrator for Charles County, Maryland; and

Susan Parker, previously Town Administrator for Sunset Beach, North Carolina

The Town Manager recruitment process has been underway since July.  The search began with a field of over 60 candidates, which has been methodically refined and vetted to arrive at the two Finalists.  Lance Richards, Avon’s Human Resources Director, said “We’re all very proud of how well this process has unfolded thus far.  We were able to work through a large number of candidates to identify candidates with the appropriate mix of local government and mountain community experience.  I’m looking forward to involvement of our citizens, residents and stakeholders in the Finalist evaluations.” 

Finance Director Scott Wright has been serving as acting town manager during the interim. Mayor Fancher said Wright and his staff have been doing an extraordinary job in managing the town's day-to-day operations, which has enabled the Council to take the time it needs to select the next manager.
