Mark Willis Named Director of Community Planning and Building
Mark Willis, Deputy Director of the Enterprise Fund, has been named to replace Tom Barnett as Director of Community Planning and Building. Mark started with Calvert County Government in Fleet Maintenance in December 2000 and worked his way up the ladder.
Mark is a Calvert County boy, having moved here with his parents in 1969. He graduated from Calvert High School in 1978 and enlisted in the Marine Corps. When he retired from the Maines, he built a log cabin in the county for his family. Mark still lives in Calvert with his wife, Rebecca, where they raised their three children.
Willis was one of 51 applicants chosen by a selection committee to complete Leadership Maryland’s eight-month hands-on learning program focused on the state’s most vital social, economic and environmental issues. The Class of 2014 reflects a cross-section of the state, including diversity of geographic location, profession, ethnicity and gender.
“To be informed about statewide and regional issues, and having the opportunity to engage and interact with leaders who put themselves on the front line every day, has prepared these individuals to be the catalyst for positive change in Maryland,” said Leadership Maryland Board Chairman William B. Grant, Esq., C.F.P. ’02, president and CEO, First United Bank & Trust
Calvert Beacon wishes Mark Willis congratulations and success in his new position. You have been found worthy to carry on the department into the future!
