Monday marked the first day on the job for Korey Mallien as the Door County Economic Development Corporation’s new Business and Education Partnership Manager. A Door County native, Mallien comes to the DCEDC after 25 years covering sports in the area and being active in the development of local youth leagues. The connections Mallien already has with the local schools through these experiences and wealth of knowledge about the Business and Education Partnership made it a good fit according to DCEDC Executive Director Caleb Frostman.
Mallien will be tapped with expanding the DCEDC’s Career Cruisin’ and Inspire modules, which over time gets students interested in local careers while connecting them with area business leaders.
