North Topsail Beach hires new town manager


NORTH TOPSAIL BEACH, NC (NEWS RELEASE) -- The Town of North Topsail Beach Board of Aldermen appointed Stuart Turille as its new Town Manager at its regular meeting last night.

Turille most recently served as Town Administrator for St. Pauls, where he managed five departments and was responsible for successfully obtaining approximately $2 million in grants for the town within five years. Turille's professional goal is to work with a coastal community with the understanding that they have unique issues from inland communities such as beach nourishment, hurricane preparedness, seasonal tourism, and absentee property ownership.

He has prior coastal experience having previously worked for Broward County, FL.

"I've just always had a dream to be a coastal manager, and work on beach nourishment, hurricanes, how you protect the coast, how you develop the coast, and how you protect the natural aspect of it while balancing out with tourism and the interests of those who own land along the shore and coastal waterways," Turille said.

Turille holds a Master of Public Administration from Florida State, a Master of Arts in International Affairs from George Washington University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Virginia.

Turille will begin working for the Town of North Topsail Beach on April 1, 2013. (Photo courtesy
