BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - It's a career that started right out of college for 36-year-old David Guillory.
Guillory began with the East Baton Rouge Parish Department of Public Works or DPW as an engineering intern in January 2003.
Over the years, he worked his way up through the ranks and then in August 2012, he began serving as the interim DPW director. The following year, Mayor Kip Holden removed the interim tag and he was sworn in August 1, 2013 as the director - making him the youngest DPW director ever as well as the first Black person to lead DPW.
Now, in a decision that was tough to make, Guillory is leaving the only job he's ever held for a non-governmental job with an infrastructure company.
In the meantime, Bryan Harmon, who is currently DPW's deputy director, will serve as the interim director until Mayor Holden names Guillory's replacement.
His last day on the job will be May 26th.
