The town had 12 applicants, and six were interviewed by a search committee, according to the Daily Hampshire Gazette. The other finalists were Mari-Jon Adams, Greenfield's community development administrator, and Robert Peirent, former public works director of East Longmeadow. Members of the board pointed to Gibson's experience. Gibson was mayor of West Springfield from 2000 to 2012, and has been town administrator in Becket since 2013.
