Centerville Mayor Brooks Compton said Davis was selected after an extensive national search. “We are pleased to bring Mr. Davis on board as our City Manager. A proven leader with a wealth of management experience, he will build upon Centerville’s outstanding services and strong residential and business foundation to further improve our community.”

“I am honored and humbled to be appointed as the next City Manager of Centerville,” said Davis. “I have lived in the community for more than 20 years, and I am very fortunate to now live and work in a community that is of the highest quality due to the outstanding and visionary leaders on City Council, the professional staff members who comprise the City of Centerville team, and the residents, businesses and institutions who are the community. I am looking forward to the opportunity and privilege to serve the entire community.”

No start date has been announced. Davis fills the position left vacant when Greg Horn retired July 5. Jennifer Wilder, Human Resources Manager, was appointed to serve as Acting City Manager during the interim. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
