Avon Town Manager Search Narrows to Two Candidates


Avon, CO – 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

Community members are invited to meet the two Finalists on Monday, December 17th at a meet-and-greet coffee session at Avon Town Hall, 100 Mikaela Way, from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m.   Interviews by invited community stakeholders will follow on Monday, December 17th and Tuesday, December 18th.  Mayor Jennie Fancher said the Town Council is committed to a thorough and diligent selection process to ensure an appropriate and professional fit with the community.

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.
