GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville officials confirmed Friday that city manager John Castile has decided to step down.

Castile, who has held the position with the city since 2010, said it was a difficult decision but he knew he was leaving Greenville in a "solid financial position" as he moves on to the next phase in his career.

“While I’ll no longer be at the helm, I can assure our residents and business owners that we have a dedicated leadership team and workforce who will continue to move our city forward," Castile said.

The exact date for when Castile will leave office has not yet been announced, but officials said he will work with Greenville City Council to develop a transition plan in coming months.

Mayor Knox White said Castile has provided invaluable leadership during his time in office and has helped the city through many new phases of growth and development.

“John is an extraordinarily talented leader and a joy to work with. He brings out the best in everyone, making the City so effective from top to bottom,” White said. “Everyone on City Council has the highest regard for his integrity and ability, and understand that his desire to step away from this very demanding 24/7 role is his personal decision. We all wish him the best.”
