Grand Forks Region Economic Development Corporation C-E-O Klaus Thiessen is stepping down. Thiessen informed the E-D-C Board today that he will retire June 30th. Thiessen has served as the E-D-C president since 2003. E-D-C Chair Tammy Peterson says Thiessen has had an invaluable impact on the region’s economic health. He came to Grand Forks from Economic Development Winnipeg where he developed strategies to improve the economy. Thiessen says being a part of the region’s transformation following the 1997 flood has been an honor. The board will immediately begin the process to select a replacement.
