High Point City Manager Greg Demko has resigned after five years on the job.

The city council announced Demko’s departure following a closed session of a recent meeting.

He has worked for High Point since 2015. City officials have not publicly stated what led to Demko’s departure, saying it’s a personnel matter.

He was hired to replace longtime manager Strib Boynton following a three-month national search. An accountant who also holds an MBA degree, Demko came to the job with more than 30 years of experience.

He is credited with helping to revitalize downtown during his tenure, through efforts that included the addition of a minor league ballpark.

Deputy manager Randy McCaslin is serving as High Point’s interim city manager.
