The Region Nine Development Commission will be getting a new executive director this week. Nicole Griensewic was offered the executive director position by the Region Nine Board of Directors last Thursday, and she accepted. Griensewic’s most recent job was resource development manager for Habitat for Humanity of Central Minnesota. She has spent the majority of her career working for the Target Corporation. The full Region Nine commission still has to formally approve the hire during its February 8th meeting. Griensewic’s tentative start date with Region Nine is February 27th.
