Message from the Executive Director
Interim Director, Megan (Puehler) Hausch, has been named Executive Director of WEDCO effective December 2, 2019.
“I’m honored to be taking on this new role in the organization. I’m thankful to the support from the board of directors, and from the former Executive Director, Matt Davis.
Economic Development covers a wide range of activities from being a fundraiser, public relations expert, workforce developer, to an incentives broker, relationship manager, and community leader. It’s not something you learn overnight, or even in a years’ time. It’s a gradual process. I’m very fortunate that I’ve had the opportunity to learn from the ground up and help shape the organization into what it is today.
Matt’s mentorship enabled me to lead, to serve in the community, to understand the field to economic development, and prepare me for this position. My personal goal is to continue the momentum the organization has. To continue to be a trusted community partner and maintain positive relationships locally and regionally; and to continuously improve the value we bring to our communities and businesses throughout the county.”
Former Executive Director, Matt Davis, stepped down from his position to take a regionally based economic development position with the Regional Growth Partnership. He now assumes the role of senior manager of site selection. Davis will be helping businesses to find sites that fit their needs across a region covering 17 counties, managing informational responses for project leads and also providing assistance to RGP’s project management team.
