The Unknowns: Open positions to fill

A lot of resumés have been flowing into Rowan County in recent months.
Top positions in the community are expected to be filled this year, making the 10th person to watch in 2012 actually several — all unknown at this point.
The city of Salisbury is looking for a city manager and a Fibrant director.
Catawba College is carrying out a national search for a new president.
The Rowan County Department of Social Services needs a director.
The N.C. Transportation Museum recently lost several positions because of state budget cuts, but the executive director’s position is open.
Most of the spokespeople for these groups say they’re in no hurry to hire; they want to be sure to get the right person.
But the Transportation Museum expects to name a leader sometime this month, with the person stepping into the position in February.
At any rate, a lot of interims are running the show at the moment. The decisions these search committees make will have repercussions communitywide.
