Jim Schuessler, the new executive director of the Door County Economic Development Corporation, is spending over half of his time getting out and interacting with business owners in the industrial, retail and restaurant setting. Schuessler, who started with the DCEDC on July 16, says it is important to spend more time in the community than behind a desk.
Schuessler spent Friday with the Vernon County Economic Association in western Wisconsin meeting with officials of a successful retail incubator and food/beverage accelerator. He hopes to bring the new ideas gathered there to Door County and help impact local businesses and industries.
