The Northeast Missouri Economic Development Council is expanding its team.
The council focuses on expanding and developing business in northeast Missouri.
The director says he has hired a part-time administrative assistant and an intern and he still plans to hire a full-time position to focus on small business development.
“We’re negotiating with the University of Missouri Extension talking about that,” said NEMO Economic Development Council Director Corey Mehaffy. “That will be the next position we try to bring on and again that person will be working with small business from start up all the way through succession planning and helping people through those processes.”
Mehaffy says these additions to his team will help the Economic Development Council better serve the area.
