Kent Winrich is apparently out as the head of Fibrant, according to a news release from the City of Salisbury.

Winrich was the head of the city's municipal broadband for less than two years.  He resigned on Wednesday afternoon.  According to a press release, City Manager Lane Bailey "accepted Winrich's resignation late yesterday, and wishes him well in his future endeavors."

The announcement about hiring Winrich was made during the Salisbury City Council meeting on Tuesday, December 2, 2014.

Evans Ballard, Salisbury’s budget and benchmarking analyst, will assume the leadership role on an interim basis for Fibrant, effective immediately.

Ballard has been employed by the city for 14 years within the finance department. Throughout his tenure his responsibilities have included preparing annual operating and capital budgets; developing, coordinating and directing a city-wide performance measurement system; reviewing and analyzing departmental programs and operations; and conducting cost benefit, productivity and management analysis. With his strong background in analysis, Ballard has been a supporting presence in Fibrant’s financial management.

As interim director of broadband and infrastructure services, he will temporarily oversee the network and information services, which supports the City’s mission and vision of innovative technology.

City Manager W. Lane Bailey has tasked Ballard to make Fibrant financially viable, according to the news release.
