David Braemer, a private school administrator in Texas for the past nine years, has been hired as to lead Ensworth School, the Board of Trustees of Ensworth announced in a letter Monday.

“The trustees were captivated by David’s intelligence, warmth, passion, and energy, and are confident that David’s vision for the future will inspire and engage the entire Ensworth community,” a letter posted on Ensworth’s website reads.

Since 2003, Braemer has worked as head of the upper school at Greenhill School in Addison, Texas. In accepting the position at Ensworth, he becomes the school’s seventh head of school.

Braemer said he’s “humbled, honored and excited” to lead the school, which serves students in kindergarten through 12th-grade at two campuses. Ensworth’s upper school was a recent addition, opening seven years ago.

Braemer replaces Will Moseley, who in May informed the board of trustees he would not be returning to Ensworth after the 2011-2012 school year.

At the time of his announcement, Moseley wrote, “I have no ‘new job’ for which I’m leaving Ensworth. It is simply the right and best time.”

Ensworth’s board of trustees appointed a head of school search committee, which interviewed eight candidates for the job. Three were invited back for private interviews.

The search committee unanimously recommended the hiring of Braemer to fill the opening.

A big shout out to Mr. Braemer! Our greatest hope is that he is able to bring back the traditions, morals, values and principles that the school was founded upon. We will be watching and listening with open and hopeful ears. Good luck!
