William Johnson retired from the Urban Economic Development Association of Wisconsin, Inc. (UEDA) in May, after serving as Executive Director for nine years. Bill will be greatly missed, but he has laid the foundation for UEDA’s future growth and community impact.
UEDA’s Board of Directors is excited to announce that longtime UEDA Deputy Director of Programs, Kristi Luzar, has been named the organization’s new Executive Director. Kristi’s commitment to UEDA is unparalleled and the Board unanimously agreed that she was the best person to build upon the successes achieved under Bill’s leadership and drive UEDA’s continued growth and community impact.
Kristi has an exciting vision for UEDA. We look forward to sharing that vision at our annual gathering on Thursday, August 20.
