BOLIVIA—Brunswick County Manager Marty Lawing has accepted an offer to take the manager’s role with Guilford County.

The Guilford County commission’s nine-member board voted 6-3 to offer the county manager job to Lawing.

“They voted at 1 a.m. I confirmed today with the Guilford County chairman (Linda Shaw),” Lawing said Friday.

“The time was right. You can’t schedule when an opportunity in a county will come.”

Lawing said the deciding factor in accepting the job was the opportunity and challenge of running a larger organization.
