Jenkins excited to lead DCEDC

Celebrating 45 years as an economic developer going back to his roots in Knoxville Tennessee, Steve Jenkins is ready to bring his vast experience to Door County.  Jenkins was hired earlier this week to replace Jim Schuessler as the new Door County Economic Development Corporation executive director.  Starting his new position on March 2, Jenkins currently works as a special business consultant with ThriveED, an economic development corporation that serves both Jefferson and Dodge County.  He says he looks forward to continuing the great progress the DCEDC has achieved over the past several years.



Jenkins’ background includes working on the 1982 World’s Fair in Knoxville as part of the executive design team and for many economic development corporations in rural and urban communities around the country.  He will be moving to Sturgeon Bay along with his wife, Lynn, in the near future.  They have two adult children and four grandchildren that live in North Carolina.  You can listen to the entire interview with new Door County Economic Development Corporation executive director Steve Jenkins below.
