RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The executive director of a group advocating for North Carolina’s 100 counties is leaving his post after nine years to work for the National Association of Counties.

The North Carolina Association of County Commissioners announced Tuesday that David F. Thompson will become president and managing director of the national group’s financial services office in November.

Thompson succeeded longtime state association leader Ron Aycock in 2005. The association says it had several successes at the General Assembly during Thompson’s tenure, most notably the phase-out of the counties’ share of payments for Medicaid patient costs.

Thompson previously served as county manager in Hertford, Stanly, Henderson and Durham counties. He also has worked as managing partner at an architecture and consulting firm.
