The Shelby County Development Corp. has named Brian Asher executive director. Asher will replace Dan Theobald, who plans to retire in December.
Asher most recently served as senior account executive with Williams Industries Inc. and as Shelbyville Common Councilman At-Large.
“We are very pleased to announce this appointment. Brian has knowledge of the area, trust of the local government and businesses, experience, skills, passion and a deep sense of commitment to lead SCDC into the future,” Shelby County Development Corporation Board President David Toll said.
Asher, a Shelbyville native, will start working with Theobald in late October until his retirement at the end of this year.
