KCEDC recently hired Richard Baker as their new Executive Director. He began his duties on January 7, 2019.
Baker brings over 10 years of economic development and tourism experience. He most recently was the Community Development Coordinator for Mille Lacs County, Minnesota where he planned, coordinated and facilitated development opportunities between cities, businesses and the county and wrote multiple grants for projects. He managed several major economic development studies for the county, including a broadband feasibility study, a tourism visitor profile study, impact of the arts and culture study and a retail gap analysis study, and collaborated on a seven county regional housing study. “My wife and I are excited to make the move to Kewaunee County,” Baker said. “We have always enjoyed the area and this opportunity allows me to utilize my nonprofit skills and experiences to grow the KCEDC organization and the Kewaunee County economy, create jobs, and increase the tax base. I am looking forward to meeting with the community leaders and business owners over the next few months and learning about their concerns and assisting them with their needs.” #econdev #economicdevelopment #entrepreneur #kewauneecounty #kcdc #qualityoflife #lovewhereyoulive #welcomehome #startup #lakemichigan #kewaunee #algomawisconsin #luxemburgwi #cascowi #communityinput #broadband #cre #jobs #yp #wkdev #wisconsinlife #movingforward

Last summer a group of 24 student volunteers from the University of Waterloo, University of Toronto, Northwestern University, and London School of Economics, embarked on a life changing Business Brigade to Panama.
With the goal of consulting five businesses, auditing the Pueblo Nuevo Community Bank, and organizing community-wide financial literacy workshops, the brigade helped analyze business problems, identify opportunities and goals, formulate business strategies, and develop sustainable solutions.
In particular, the team worked with Lucia Gonzalez’ Organic Farm, the Community Bank of Pueblo Nuevo, Yasmila Bacorizo’s Crafts & Agriculture, Irsalia Bacorizo’s Plantain & Yuca Organics and Yadira Gomez’ Kiosk. Check out photos from their Business Brigade!
Huge thanks to Global Business Brigades - University of Waterloo for your support on this post!

In addition to the loan programs and business incentives it offers in its 45-county region, the Southeast Kentucky Economic Development Corporation has been delivering a training course for some time to help small businesses tackle the often overwhelming task of digital marketing. And it's been a hit.
But the folks at SKED wanted to take this concept one step further. With the desire to market their digital marketing curriculum nationally to member-driven business organizations (like Chambers of Commerce), SKED partnered with us to brand this program and create a digital presence of its own.
What resulted was an exceptionally fun project that is already making its way across the country. @bebossonline
helps small business owners feel as confident about marketing themselves online as they do about running their business. In addition to the logo and marketing collateral, P&P designed and developed the program's website, which includes a membership portal where clients can download course materials and valuable resources.
Check out the work at the portfolio link in our bio.
