DURHAM, N.C. -

The Durham Board of County Commissioners named a new county manager Monday to replace Mark Ruffin, who retired late last month.

Wendell M. Davis, who is vice chancellor for administration and finance at North Carolina Central University, was appointed the new county manager. He previously served at Durham's deputy county manager from October 1999 until May 2011.

"We are excited to have Wendell return to our organization with his experience and commitment to county government," said Chairman Michael D. Page. "His vision and passion directed towards building an efficient government will allow us to serve our citizens more effectively. We look forward to his leadership as we embrace innovative opportunities to build our system."

Davis replaces Ruffin, who retired after 14 years on Jan. 31. Ruffin announced his retirement in July 2013.

Davis will begin his new duties with Durham County on April 14.
