The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Willis as the county administrator. Willis, who was most recently the planning and zoning director in the Calvert County Department of Planning & Zoning, has worked for the county government for nearly 20 years. He succeeds Terry Shannon who retired Friday, January 3, 2020, after 32 years of dedicated public service.
Prior to leading the Department of Planning & Zoning, Willis was an employee of the Calvert County Department of Public Works for 15 years leading the county’s enterprise fund operations, establishing and supervising the fleet and highway maintenance divisions and managing water, sewer and solid waste.
Willis, who grew up in Calvert County, served in the armed forces for 20 years, first as an enlisted marine in combat ground and then a marine officer in charge of combat logistics for 10 years each. His military experience coupled with his experience working in Calvert County Government makes him well suited for the job. The BOCC is confident he will lead our employees to achieve great success in the years to come.
