The city of Wilmington has named Tony Caudle as interim city manager.

Caudle, currently the deputy city manager, will take on the interim position on June 1, stated a news release.

His appointment will follow the departure of city manager Sterling Cheatham, who is retiring after 18 years in the post and a 45-year career in public administration, stated the release.

Caudle has served as Wilmington’s deputy city manager since 2008. He previously served as town manager for Black Mountain, Wrightsville Beach and Topsail Beach, stated the release. He has also held the city manager position in Woodruff, South Carolina.
