LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — The City of Lynchburg swore in a new city manager, Wynter Benda, nearly a year after former City Manager Bonnie Svrcek retired.

Benda comes to Lynchburg from Norfolk — where according to a press release from the City of Lynchburg — he served as the Chief Deputy City Manager since 2017. 

According to the release, Benda holds a Bachelor of Arts from Hampden-Sydney College, a Masters of Divinity and Masters of Theology degree from Union Presbyterian Seminary, and a JD from Regent University School of Law.
