Another high level turnover for Wisconsin's new job creation agency

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The troubles continue for the state’s relatively-new jobs agency.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation brought on its third chief financial officer in two years Monday.  Scott Bowers resigned to return to his former employer, Marling Lumber Company in Janesville, as chief executive officer.

It was apparently a position he had wanted for some time.

WEDC has dealt with challenges since it was formed in July 2011.

It replaced the former Department of Commerce.

Last year, published reports found the agency wasn’t tracking more than $12 million in past-due loans.

The WEDC had been under-staffed since it was formed when it lost many lower-level employees. It has only recently returned to full-staff levels.
