Mark Wolfe named executive director of facilities for Horry County Schools

Mark Wolfe is settling in to his new position as executive director of facilities for Horry County Schools.

“I’m very flattered,” Wolfe said. “It’s going to be a good move.”

The Horry County Board of Education voted Thursday to promote Wolfe, who was previously serving as the coordinator of design, engineering and sustainability for the district. He began employment with the district in January 2014, he said.

“Mark Wolfe has been a great asset to Horry County Schools ever since he was first hired,” said Joe DeFeo, board chairman. “He has shown himself to be a professional asset that has a great relationship with the board, the district and local businesses.”

Wolfe said he doesn’t have any immediate plans for the district.

“I’m going to need a chance to get into the position, to see where things are and where they’ve been,” Wolfe said.

Wolfe served as the vice president of Usry Wolfe Peterson Doyle Architecture for 23 years before taking a position with Horry County Schools, according to his LinkedIn page.

Wolfe replaces Matt Dean as executive director of facilities. Dean resigned from the position earlier this month, said Teal Harding, district spokeswoman.
