What if the rest of the world functioned like pro sports? Think you have a talent gap in marketing and have too much talent in accounting, then why not trade your accountant for a marketing whiz from the company down the street?
That question is prompted by the news that recently-retired Lewisville town manager Cecil Wood has agreed to become the interim town manager in North Wilkesboro. You see North Wilkesboro recently lost their town manager, Hank Perkins, when he resigned to become town manager of…Lewisville.
In truth this isn't that surprising. Cecil Wood used to be the Wilkes county manager and has some pretty deep roots there, but it's still kind of interesting to think of towns (or companies) trading talent the way pro teams do.
