August 2, 2019, Door County, WI – In the past year, the staff and board at Door County Economic Development Corporation have been making across-the-board strides to ensure they are providing best possible practices in economic development services to the business community.
Another important benchmark was announced today as Kelsey Fox was named Workforce Development Specialist for Team DCEDC. A graduate of Sturgeon Bay High School in 2005, Fox earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree from UW-Milwaukee in 2009. Following graduation, she worked for two firms including OneTouchPoint Communications Group in Hartland, and later moved on to Briggs & Stratton Corporation, where she quickly moved up the ranks, presently serving as Digital Marketing Assistant Manager.
As she prepares to enter her new role, Fox stated “I feel so fortunate and honored to have the opportunity to join Team DCEDC focusing on workforce development throughout the county. Door County has always held a special place in my heart and I couldn’t be more excited to come home and put the skills I’ve developed throughout my career to work in my favorite place.”
“We are excited to have Kelsey return home to Door County and join Team DCEDC,” stated DCEDC’s Executive Director Jim Schuessler. “Considering the current labor force shortage our entire team is engaged on solving the county’s labor force issues, including misaligned training and more jobs available than people to fill them. Kelsey’s skills with cutting-edge marketing engagement will be crucial as we launch our workforce attraction platforms including LIVEDoorCounty.org and Alumni Door County.”
In addition to collaborating with other Team DCEDC members on the launch of countywide workforce attraction initiatives, Kelsey will be working with local entrepreneurs with the development of their marketing plans as well offering support to county employers on their job posting and outreach strategies. Fox will be introduced to the DCEDC Board of Directors during their monthly board meeting on August 12.
