WATERVILLE — The Central Maine Growth Council has hired an economic development specialist and restructured its organization in an effort to kick-start its mission to promote economic growth in the Waterville area.
Garvan D. Donegan, a recent graduate of the Muskie School of Public Service at the University of Southern Maine, started work at the beginning of the month at the council.
The council opted to hire someone to focus exclusively on economic development instead of replacing executive director Darryl Sterling, who stepped down from the position last year.
Kimberly Lindlof, president and CEO of the Mid-Maine Chamber of Commerce, was appointed interim executive director after Sterling’s departure and will remain in the position. The council will contract with the chamber for administrative and bookkeeping duties, freeing Donegan to work directly on economic development.
