The Pinal County Board of Supervisors has named Greg Stanley as interim county manager.
Stanley was one of three candidates the board interviewed for the position.
He will take over the duties on July 1 and temporarily succeed Fritz Behring, who's leaving to become Scottsdale's city manager.
Stanley has been Pinal County's assistant county manager.
The supervisors say the interim manager is eligible to apply for the permanent opening.
The county currently is in the process of selecting a recruiting firm to assist in screening candidates for the job.
