Heartland Partnership Staff Realignment

To All Heartland Partnership Board Members,

The Heartland Partnership is undergoing a staff realignment and office reorganization in order to be more efficient and more productive.

Rob Parks will become President of the Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce and step away from the day-to-day operations of the Chamber. She will continue handling advocacy and policy issues for the Chamber and will focus more on regional, state and national issues. Terry Best will take over the day- to-day operations of the Chamber and become the Vice President of Programs and Membership Services.

Kip McCoy will be taking on some of the human resource responsibilities of Heartland Partnership, along with his Heartland Capital Network duties. Kip's new title will be Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Heartland Partnership.

Kyle Ham will be moving his office to the Innovation Center. Kyle will still have Heartland Partnership duties; however, he will physically be located at the Innovation Center to be closer to the tenant companies and the day-to-day operations of that facility.

This reorganization will help the Heartland Partnership family of companies meet the demands of the recovering economic activities of this region, as well as expanding the organization's abilities to maintain our presence in Central Illinois. These changes will begin right away and we hope to have full implementation by October 30th.
