Town Manager Recruitment

CARRBORO, NC – The Town Council has authorized commencement of the recruitment process for a new town manager.

The Carrboro Town Council held a closed session on Thursday, Aug. 31, to discuss the recruitment process to fill the upcoming town manager vacancy. Next week, the Town of Carrboro will issue a request for proposals seeking an executive recruitment firm to conduct the town manager search. Once a firm is selected, the national search is anticipated to last until early spring 2024. The posting will be published at https://www.carrboronc.gov/bids.aspx 

The Council has appointed Assistant Town Manager Marie Parker to serve as interim town manager starting on Nov. 4. Parker comes to Carrboro from the Cape Fear Public Transportation Authority (CFPTA) in Wilmington, N.C.  She was formerly general manager at GoRaleigh, prior to her advancement to CFPTA.  https://www.carrboronc.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=2380
