DCDC Names New Executive Director

The DeWitt County Development Council has a new Executive Director.


Curt Homann is one of the founding members of the DeWitt County Development Council and has most recently served as the President of the Board and indicates has had it on his radar that perhaps one day he could lead the organization.



Being a former business owner in DeWitt County and having a vast familiarity with the DCDC already is going to allow Homann to get a jumpstart on the things he wants to do within the DCDC. 



For Homann, he hopes to be able to help businesses with any issues they may have but greater than that, he hopes to help them grow and expand. Additionally, he will focus on businesses that want to locate or relocate to DeWitt County. 



The DCDC for many years was funded in part by dollars from the City of Clinton, the City of Farmer City, and the DeWitt County Board. In recent years, those dollars have been pulled back. Rather than seek those out again, Homann says he'll be engaged with those entities to be available for anything he can provide.



Homann used a basketball metaphor to describe his role as Executive saying he would rather be the team leader in assists and helping the leading scorer get to 40 points rather than be the person scoring the points and getting the publicity for it. 


You can contact Homann by calling 217-935-5271. He also points anyone interested in contacting them digitally to reach out through their Facebook page. 


Homann will be hitting the streets of the County this week introducing himself to business owners.
