The Posey County Economic Development Partnership has named Jenna Alka executive director. Alka was previously Director of Clinical Programs at St. Vincent Health.
After a nearly six-month-long hunt to fill the position, Alka has stepped into the role, relieving Interim Executive Director Michelle Hudson. Since December 2018, Hudson has worked closely with the search committee to recruit and hire a new executive director. She also helped the organization to build what it calls a “comprehensive transition plan.”
As executive director of the organization, Alka will be responsible for “all aspects of the development of new business and talent opportunities in Posey County along with the retention, support and maintenance of existing industry sectors.”
She will also work to increase residency and attract prospective residents to the area.
Alka will step into her new role on May 9.
