In a letter dated November 7, 2018, Charlie Barrineau states that he will be resigning from his Greenwood City Manager position.
Barrineau states in the letter that he will be taking a position with the Municipal Association of South Carolina based in Columbia.
Many throughout Greenwood and states around knew Barrineau as the face of the Festival of Discovery, Greenwood premier BBQ event. But that was of course only one of Barrineau’s past responsibilities.
In years of working with Barrineau, our staff members at GwdToday could tell he had a clear vision for Greenwood and that was growth. He wanted the best the city could provide and he was always willing to stand up in front of any camera and tell everyone it was all made possible by the others he worked with.
Greenwood will miss Barrineau, but like any great leader they always have others around them that are capable of continuing a successful trend, and Greenwood has several.
We wish the best for Barrineau as he takes on his next career and look forward to working with the next Greenwood City Manager.
