ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Nearly a year after the last Rockford Area Economic Development Council president left, her replacement is introduced.
If you follow the path of business leaders at Giovanni's Wednesday night you will find RAEDC's new leader Michael Nicholas.
The Crystal Lake resident has been CEO of several companies most recently Continental Datalabel in Elgin. Nicholas beat out 800 people during a 10 month search for Janyce Fadden's replacement.
Nicholas and his wife will be moving to Rockford. He already has a daughter and grand children that live in Winnebago.
