The Envision Greater Fond du Lac Board of Directors have named Jim Cleveland as the organization’s Interim President and CEO, beginning December 5.
Cleveland currently serves as Envision Greater Fond du Lac’s director of outreach and client services and will assume interim duties following the departure of the organization’s current president and CEO, Cecilia Harry. Recruitment efforts are underway for the organization’s next leader.
“This is an important next step in our transition plan,” stated Paul Reetz, board of directors chairman and owner of Integrity Saw and Tool. “We have great confidence in Jim’s ability to serve in this capacity while providing leadership to the staff and our business community during this time.”
Cleveland is a long-time local resident. Having served both the Association of Commerce and the Fond du Lac County Economic Development Corporation over the past decade, Cleveland brings leadership, a steady presence and knowledge of both chamber programming and fundamentals of economic development. He has been involved with the individual and combined organizations for more than 12 years. His earlier work includes 15 years in banking.
“I am honored to serve in this capacity alongside our board of directors, staff and volunteers that remain committed to our vision of awakening greater economic opportunity for all within our thriving, engaged community,” shared Cleveland.
