Village manager announces resignation

On Tuesday, Village Manager Jeff Sanborn notified Council Members of his intentions to resign from his position effective Oct. 25.

“Leading our exceptional Village staff has been one of the most rewarding professional experiences I have had in my life,” said Sanborn. “I know that we have the right people and systems in place to ensure continued success after I am gone.”

The Village has operated at a very high level during Sanborn’s tenure while maintaining the lowest tax rate of all municipalities in Moore County,” said the Village in a press release. “His leadership didn’t go unnoticed, receiving the Certificate of Excellence in Performance Management each year since 2018. Residents of Pinehurst also recognize his leadership by consistently rating multiple Village services and areas of customer service more highly than any other local government across the country — based on results of the annual community surveys. Most recently, the Village was awarded with the Leading the Way Award by the ETC Institute.”

The Council appointed Sanborn in June 2015 after a 27-year career in the U.S. Army, where he retired as a colonel.

Council members are now tasked with finding Sanborn’s successor.

“Jeff has been a tremendous leader to a high-performing staff. His presence will be missed,” said Mayor Patrick Pizzella. “Council will work closely with administration to ensure a smooth transition.”
