Gov. Evers Announces Search for Next Secretary and CEO of Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation
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.

“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.”
