Speaking at the event, Mayor Eveleth said it took six months to come to a decision, and he said "I know it's the right one." Henne, an Owosso native, noted it was the longest hiring process that he had been through, but said it was the right decision made at the right pace. "It really is an honor to come back and serve as City Manager;" he said, giving credit to outgoing City Manager, Don Crawford, for the positive current state of the city. "I hope that I can last as long as you and make the difference that you have."
Henne comes back to Owosso after serving as City Manager of Springfield Michigan.
