CAREY — At Monday’s Wyandot County Office of Economic Development meeting at Vaughn Industries, Greg Moon was introduced as the county’s economic development director.
“It’s great to have a position where I can give back to the community and this is a great position to be able to do that,” Moon said.
Originally from Upper Sandusky, Moon graduated Ohio State University with Bachelor of Arts in aviation management and with his MBA from Franklin University. His most recent job was for The Right Thing in Findlay.
He is replacing Eric Romich, who took a new job as an Ohio State University Extension energy development field specialist.
“There are pretty big shoes to fill,” Moon said. “I know Eric did a great job, but I feel I can still utilize Eric because I do know him personally and I can utilize all of the knowledge I gained from my past work and college experience. I feel I can put that to good use.”
“I know we want to continue the business retention and expansion program,” he added. “It’s been in the community for a while and it’s really seen results. Something I’ve been looking at is an economic gardening program. It gardens smaller businesses and helps them grow into much larger businesses.”
