MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today announced that he will launch a search for the next secretary and CEO of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation.

On September 1, 2019, Gov. Evers can make an appointment for this position, which will be the final member of his cabinet team. Republicans in the legislature changed state law during the lame-duck session following Gov. Evers’ election to prevent him from immediately appointing this position.

Gov. Evers is running a transparent process to find the best candidate to lead the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and is encouraging qualified applicants to apply online at: https://evers.wi.gov/Pages/WEDC-Secretary-CEO-Application.aspx.

“A 72-county approach to economic development is critical to creating middle-class jobs and growing the economy. The next leader at the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation has an incredible opportunity to foster a culture that encourages entrepreneurship and innovation while supporting the Main Street businesses, start-ups, and large-scale companies that employ people across our state and help Wisconsin’s economy thrive,” said Gov. Evers. “As we begin the transparent process to find a new secretary and CEO at the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, I would also like to thank Mark Hogan for his service to our state over the last four years and the professionalism and dedication with which he has approached this role.”
