80 apply for PenMar post

August 27, 2002|by TARA REILLY

The chairman of the PenMar Development Corp. board of directors said Monday that approximately 80 people have applied for the company's vacant executive director post.

Brett Wilson said he didn't know when the board would recommend a candidate to the Washington County Commissioners but that the group would issue a press release when it does.

"It's going well," Wilson said. "We'll select the best qualified person from those resumes."

The County Commissioners will vote on the board's recommendation.

The executive director position has been vacant since late May, when George W. Fletcher left fewer than three months after he was hired.

Fletcher, of Upperco, Md., was appointed on Feb. 26 and started work on March 4.

Wilson has refused to say whether Fletcher resigned or was laid off, or to give other terms of his departure.

PenMar Development Corp. was created by the Maryland General Assembly in 1997 to redevelop the former Fort Ritchie U.S. Army base for business use. Some 2,000 jobs were lost when Fort Ritchie closed in September 1998.
