New leader for Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation

MADISON (WSAU-Wheeler News)   Stephanie Walker starts June 17th as the fourth chief financial officer in two years for the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation. She was named yesterday to replace Scott Bowers, who left after just one day in April when his old employer – Marling Lumber – offered him another job.

Walker, who’s not related to Governor Scott Walker, is currently the finance director for the Milwaukee suburb of Shorewood. She held similar posts in Brown Deer and Berwyn Illinois. She is joining a two-year-old public-private agency that was recently called on the carpet for not adopting certain policies, and failing to keep adequate checks on grants-and-loans made to businesses for creating jobs.

Until Bowers was hired, the W-E-D-C went 16 months without a chief financial officer, following the resignation of Mike Klosinski – who was the agency’s second C-F-O.
