(MURFREESBORO) Rutherford County's Office of Information Technology Director Brian Robertson handed County Mayor Bill Ketron his resignation Friday afternoon.
The 30-year employee has built-up a considerable amount of leave and according to his FaceBook page, Saturday (10/5/2019) is his birthday and he is taking his family to the beach to enjoy time together.
He explained, "As a family, we're seeking renewal and restoration."
Robertson posted, "The decision comes with my family's full support and I plan to pursue other career opportunities outside of Rutherford County OIT. It seems I am at the point in my life where if there's gonna be a change I'd better get-to-it."
Robertson started the county's first centralized technology effort on July 1, 1996.
He continued, "Serving the county for the last 30 years has been the greatest privilege of my professional life and has afforded me the opportunity to form the type of meaningful relationships and affiliations that will last forever."
While serving Rutherford County, Robertson chaired the Main Street Murfreesboro board, a leader with troop 1108 Boy Scouts and the Eagle Scouting program, served on the Highland Avenue study committee, and numerous other efforts designed to benefit the people of Rutherford County.
He concluded, "Thoughts and prayers (or job ideas) are welcome. Get ready for Brian 2.0!"
