The Martin County Alliance for Economic Growth’s board of directors has hired Angie Risacher as its new executive director. Risacher succeeds longtime executive director Tim Kinder, who left the organization this summer to pursue an advanced educational degree.
The alliance says Risacher will be responsible for leading business attraction, retention and expansion efforts in the county.
“Angie is a good fit for this position as she has extensive experience as a small business owner, working with local and federal government, grain processing centers, banks and school systems, as well as being involved in multiple organizations each with the goal of making Martin County a better more prosperous community,” said Alliance board member Dan Gregory.
The alliance says Risacher has already started working with Radius Indiana on some economic development projects for the area.
“We’re delighted to have Angie as a partner who can direct us on promoting and serving economic development in Martin County communities, including Shoals, Loogootee, and Crane. She is already scheduling activities with us that are good steps forward for her communities,” said Jeff Quyle, president and chief executive officer of Radius.
