MCEDC Narrows Search for Director

Over 70 resumes have been received by the Marshall County Economic Development Corporation board members and a decision on a candidate should be made by the end of the first quarter.

According to a published report in the Pilot News, former director Jay Bahr resigned in November since taking the lead position in April of 2013 and the corporation has been relying on staff already in place to complete the duties of the director.

Board Chairman Bill Davis told the publication that the applications have been narrowed to less than 12 and four of the candidates will meet with the board for final interviews.
