Kimball hires new Economic Development Director

The City of Kimball has hired Wilson Bowling as its new Economic Development Director/Assistant to the City Administrator.

Bowling joins the City's leadership team and will oversee the City's economic development initiatives, market Kimball to commercial and industrial business, and work to enhance the economic vitality of the community.

The City received twenty applications for the position. The list was narrowed down to five candidates who were interviewed by a panel consisting of city staff and community representatives. The top two finalists were invited to Kimball to tour the community and meet with the Mayor, City Administrator, and members of the interview panel.

Bowling currently works for the Economic and Community Development Institute at Auburn University. The Economic and Community Development Institute provides leadership for economic and community development throughout Alabama. Bowling is excited about moving to Kimball and being part of a team dedicated to diversifying the local economy by working to attract residential, commercial, and industrial development to Kimball. He holds a Master of Public Administration degree with a minor in economic development and a Bachelor of Arts in German Language and Literature with a minor in Business, both from Auburn University. Despite his allegiances to Auburn University and the SEC, it was made very clear that he would be coming to Nebraska Cornhuskers territory.

The City of Kimball is excited to welcome Wilson Bowling to the community on April 29, 2013.
