PENDER COUNTY — A new town manager has been hired to lead the second fastest growing county in North Carolina.

According to Pender County Board of Commissioners, Michael Silverman has been appointed as the county manager and will begin his position June 3. Silverman is taking over the reins from David Andrews.

Andrews announced in December he would retire and is stepping down June 30 after 33 years working in government.

The commissioners have been searching for his replacement since the end of the year and appointed Silverman due to his “wealth of experience and a proven track record of effective leadership.”

Silverman is from Sanford, North Carolina, but will be exiting his position as city manager from Pascagoula, Mississippi. He attended UNCW and received his master of public administration from UNC. Silverman will guide the day-to-day operations of Pender County government, working with staff, elected officials and the community at large to address priorities and concerns.

“His extensive experience in municipal management and his commitment to fostering transparent, accountable governance make him well-equipped to lead Pender County into a successful future,” according to a county release.

Silverman wrote in the release he is eager to move to his new home and serve its public.

“Pender County holds a unique charm with its breathtaking natural landscapes, dedicated residents, and vibrant heritage, fostering a genuine community spirit. My commitment lies in actively engaging with the community and working closely with staff to achieve the objectives outlined by the Pender County Commissioners,” he wrote in the press release.
