Open Letter From Boone County Economic Development Corp. Executive Director Bryan Brackemyre

Hello Family, Friends and Colleagues:

It is with mixed emotions, that after five years at the Boone County Economic Development Corporation (Boone EDC), I will be leaving my position as Executive Director at the Boone EDC July 3. I will start my new position with Ernst & Young as a Manager in the State and Local Tax Practice July 21.

I have deeply appreciated the past five years with the Boone EDC. The knowledge and experience that I've been able to obtain while at the Boone EDC has been invaluable to my career and professional development. I am grateful and privileged for the great board members, elected officials and colleagues that I've had the opportunity to work with during this time. It's been a pleasure to grow professionally and make an impact in the community where I was born and raised.

It is, however, with great excitement that I am looking forward to my new position and starting a new phase of my career. My new role with Ernst & Young will offer new challenges, experiences and opportunities to further my personal and professional growth. I look forward to continuing to work with many of you in my new role. I will forward my new work contact information to you in the weeks ahead.
