IDA hires consulting firm to lead search for executive director / April 12, 2021

The Halifax County Industrial Development Authority has retained a North Carolina consulting firm to help it find a new executive director to lead the county’s economic development efforts.

The IDA Board of Directors hired Greensboro-based Jorgenson Consulting to perform a search to bring qualified candidates to the IDA. The IDA issued a request-for-proposal to 13 consulting firms that perform executive searches and received four responses. Three firms were interviewed and ranked, and the IDA negotiated a contract with Jorgenson for the work.

Jorgenson Consulting has 27 years’ experience recruiting and placing individuals in senior executive positions. The firm has a long track record of working with organizations within the non-profit, economic and community development sectors and is a contributor in non-profit, chamber of commerce, downtown development and economic development fields.

The search process will kick off April 16 at the regular IDA Board meeting and is expected to take from 90 to 120 days to complete. The new director will succeed former Executive Director Brian Brown, who was fired by the IDA board in October. The IDA has been led in the interim by Mike Davidson, retired economic development chief for Campbell County.
