Business Council extends CEO search to Nov. 25

The advisory search committee for a new chief executive officer of the Wyoming Business Council has extended the deadline for applications to Nov. 25. 

All existing applicants are still under consideration and will be held for review after the Nov. 25 deadline.

“It is essential that we offer a competitive benefit and salary package to attract and motivate a leader to drive the important work of the Wyoming Business Council and the State of Wyoming. After careful review, the advisory search committee feels that our initial job postings may not have been clear what candidates can expect from us for compensation,” said Megan Goetz, Wyoming Business Council Board of Directors co-chair. “The beginning annual salary for this position is $140,000, and we are prepared to evaluate further for the ideal candidate who can master private sector experiences within the public sector arena. Compensation for the CEO will be determined commensurate upon experience. For the integrity of the process, we want to ensure we are transparent to all applicants who are considering this role.”

The Business Council’s new CEO will lead the agency to realize diverse, broad and lasting economic growth for Wyoming. The CEO will report to a governor-appointed board of directors and will work with staff, partner organizations and elected officials to support statewide economic diversification.
