A nationwide search is on for Destination Door County to find its next leader, but on Wednesday they announced former CEO Jack Moneypenny’s temporary replacement. Current Director of Communications and Public Relations Jon Jarosh, who has been with the organization since 1997, was named the Interim CEO. The head of the search committee tasked with finding a permanent replacement Todd Trimberger praised what Moneypenny accomplished in his fourteen years as the CEO but is confident Jarosh can carry the torch during the search.
DDC and their search committee for this hire are teaming up with executive search firm SearchWide Global to carry out the hire. No set deadline for permanently filling the vacancy has been announced, but Trimberger estimates it’ll take about three months. The process will include SearchWide Global conducting a needs assessment with Door County stakeholders that will help build a desired profile. The search committee for Moneypenny’s successor also includes Tim Guckenberg, Greg Stillman, Bob Papke, Jeff Lutsey, Nedd Neddersen, Pam Seiler, and Myles Danhausen Jr. Moneypenny’s official exit is scheduled for July 14th.
