|Written by Chris Lee|
Jeff Weaver has been hired to fill the vacant executive director position for Phillips County Economic Development Corporation.
Weaver replaces Erica Ayoub who announced her resignation earlier this year.
Weaver, who enjoys the satisfaction of working with and helping people, is looking forward to the new position. He was slated to begin Sept. 1, but with Labor Day, his first official day was Tuesday, Sept. 4. He has already spent some time with Ayoub learning the ropes and getting up to speed on the position.
“My greatest career satisfaction has been to have played a key role in helping numerous clients assess their own strengths, weaknesses, challenges and opportunities and then assist them in formulating that information into a plan for future growth, success and sustainability,” Weaver said.
“I’m excited to now be afforded an opportunity to channel this lifetime of experience and skill sets into helping our businesses and communities in Phillips County lay an even greater foundation for growth and success.”
He is most looking forward to helping businesses in Phillips County play a role locally and achieve their goals.
Weaver is a native Coloradan and grew up in Burlington. He earned a bachelor’s degree in ag economics from Oklahoma State University.
Weaver has 30 years of experience as both a commercial banker and a private consultant. He hopes his skills will help him transition into the new position.
Weaver and his wife Karen moved to the Phillips County area in 2005. They have five grown children and 10 grandchildren.
In his spare time Weaver enjoys working with his horses. He is also a member of the Melissa Memorial Hospital Foundation board.
