[October 23, 2012]  The Lincoln & Logan County Development Partnership announces that Brian A. Bergen has been hired as its new executive director, effective Tuesday.

Bergen replaces Michael Maniscalco, who resigned July 1.

A search committee led by board president Steven Smith evaluated more than 25 applicants. The committee was comprised of representatives from the city of Lincoln, city of Atlanta, Logan County Board, Logan County Farm Bureau, Heartland Community College and Lincoln Christian University.

Bergen's experience includes a position as director of agribusiness and economic development in eastern Indiana. In that capacity, he worked with existing agribusiness operations and new operations to bring over $850 million in investments into the region. As a result, he was asked to assist and eventually lead the economic development program of the regional organization, working with county offices to attract new manufacturing and retail opportunities.

He earned a bachelor's degree in business and economics from Indiana State University.
