WHEDA’s Hogan picked as next CEO of WEDC

Gov. Scott Walker today appointed Mark R. Hogan as the next CEO of the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp.

Hogan currently chairs the board of the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority. He retired in 2010 after almost 40 years in the banking industry, though he’s been serving as a senior adviser at BMO Harris Bank.

“Mark Hogan is a proven and respected leader in finance and business, and we are honored to have him as a partner in our efforts to grow the economy, create jobs, and keep Wisconsin heading in the right direction,” Walker said in a statement. “Mark’s experience will be invaluable as WEDC continues to reform and improve processes to best serve the citizens of this state in developing economic opportunities for families all around Wisconsin.”
