Danville Selects New Deputy City Manager

Posted:

Danville, VA - The city of Danville announced Tuesday that Ken Larking, assistant county manager in Moore County, N.C., has been selected as deputy city manager.

Larking's first day on the job will be March 18.

"Ken is going to be a great addition to our staff," City Manager Joe King said. "He not only has years of experience as a manager, but a passion for local government, a strong work ethic and a firm belief in the future of this city as a great place to live and raise a family."

Larking was selected through a national recruitment. He will bring nearly 15 years of experience with him to Danville. He has served as assistant county manager in Moore County, N.C., for three years. Prior to that, he guided Yadkinville, N.C., as town manager for seven years and served four years as budget and performance manager in Hickory, N.C.

"I am definitely impressed by what Danville has done with regard to economic development. I think many communities would be envious of Danville's success in recruiting a diverse mix of industries. It is important that we continue that effort," Larking said.

Larking takes the position held by David Parrish, who resigned in December to join the city of Greensboro, N.C., as assistant city manager.
