WHITLEY COUNTY, Ind. (January 24, 2020) – The Whitley County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) board of directors chairman, Brooks Langeloh, announced today that Jon Myers, EDC president, will retire later this spring.

“Jon told us about six months ago he wanted to pursue other projects unrelated to economic development and he felt now was time to start that process,” Langeloh said. “Although we are sorry to see him go, we are glad we have plenty of time to find his replacement and plan for a smooth transition.”

Myers has been president of the EDC since 2015.

“I can’t begin to explain what it has meant to me to have had the opportunity to lead the Whitley County EDC for the last five years. To have the privilege do this work in my own community has been both a great honor and a lot of fun,” Myers said.

The EDC will immediately begin the process of searching for Mr. Myers’ replacement.
