County Manager Bryan Hagood announced today that he will retire from his position as County Manager at the end of April, 2022 to relocate with his family to western North Carolina. Hagood has worked with Alamance County for 24 years. Hagood began with the county as a part-time summer employee for Recreation and Parks in 1996. After graduating from NC State University, he began fulltime with Recreation and Parks as Program Coordinator in May of 1998. During his tenure, he has advanced to Recreation and Parks Director, Assistant County Manager/Recreation and Parks Director, Assistant County Manager, and became County Manager in March 2017.
Hagood stated, “It’s been a privilege to serve the citizens of Alamance County as part of their county government. I have greatly enjoyed and appreciated the people I have worked with across all county departments and throughout the community. My wife and I are excited about the opportunity for her to further her career at a time that coincides with my eligibility to retire”. Hagood shared that some of his proudest achievements have been the opportunity to work with passive park property acquisitions and Haw River Trial efforts. Additionally, he is proud of being a part of the Education Capital Funding effort to improve the county.
Alamance County Board of County Commissioners Chair John Paisley stated, “Mr. Hagood has done a wonderful job as County Manager. He has always been proactive about issues that affect the county and the community. The Board of Commissioners has been especially pleased with his efforts to advance the school system, grow Recreation and Parks, support mental health efforts, and manage county government through the uncertainty of a pandemic. While we will certainly miss Bryan, we are excited about his opportunity to relocate to an area that he and his wife have always enjoyed. Due to his planning, leadership, and excellent communication, we feel well prepared as he transitions from the county next year”.
