The Town of Essex has appointed Anne Miskovsky to the part-time contract position of Economic Development Officer. In her new role Miskovsky will be responsible for the development and implementation of the Town’s economic development programs and initiatives for business retention, promotion, marketing and expansion.

Miskovsky has over 25 years of experience in economic development and entrepreneurship, serving as Economic Development Officer for the Municipality of Leamington for 14 years prior to her retirement last year. Since then, she has been working part-time for the Windsor-Essex Economic Development Corporation providing business start-up consulting services through the Small Business Centre location in Essex.

Essex Chief Administrative Officer Russ Phillips is looking forward to having an Economic Development Officer on staff.

“One of Anne’s primary responsibilities upon arriving will be to work with Council, the administration, and the broader community in developing programs for business retention, promotion and expansion,” says Phillips. “She will be tasked with identifying and recruiting businesses, as well as acting as an advocate for business in Essex.”

Miskovsky is looking forward to the challenge.

“I am delighted to join the Town of Essex as Economic Development Officer,” she says. “Town staff and council have undertaken a great deal of work setting the stage for growth and development and I look forward to helping implement these plans. As a resident of Essex I have a vested interest in the success of our community.”
