Former Lewes building official Robin Davis has accepted a job as the Lewes Board of Public Works assistant general manager.
Davis joined the Lewes building department in 2015 as the assistant building official. After the retirement of Henry Baynum, he was promoted to the building official role. He previously worked for the Town of Milton.
“The BPW is very fortunate to have Robin join its staff,” said BPW President Preston Lee. “He has extensive previous public utilities experience and a wealth of knowledge of the Lewes community. I’ve personally worked with Robin on city/BPW issues and experienced firsthand his excellent work ethic and good judgment. His experience with both the city and now the BPW will continue to strengthen the ties between the two administrations.”
Davis will work closely with General Manager Austin Calaman, who served as assistant general manager under former GM Darrin Gordon. Calaman was named general manager in August.
“Robin brings a wealth of knowledge to the BPW, including previously holding a Delaware wastewater operator license, a Delaware water operator license and still currently holds a master plumber license,” Calaman said. “He also brings his many years of experience with the City of Lewes, which will merge seamlessly with the BPW. We look forward to Robin's contributions to the BPW in the coming months and years.”
