Langley joins Hoosier Energy economic development team
Hoosier Energy is pleased to announce that Christy Langley has joined the generation and transmission electric power cooperative’s economic development team.
As an economic development coordinator, Langley will assist Hoosier Energy’s 18 distribution cooperatives in central and southern Indiana and southeastern Illinois with business retention, expansion and attraction projects.
“Strategic economic development depends upon finding a balance between the ideal and the real, a focus electric cooperatives execute every day for the communities they serve,” Langley said. “I’m excited to be working throughout southern Indiana where I grew up and still call home,” said Langley, who is from Madison, Indiana.
Previously, Langley served as Director of Planning and Transportation for the city of Bloomington, Indiana, where she managed all planning, infrastructure and development projects for the city in close coordination with other departments. Prior to her work in Bloomington, Langley’s experience includes 10 years of service for the city of Noblesville where she held various leadership roles including deputy mayor, director of planning and development and assistant director of economic development. Langley also serves as an adjunct professor for Indiana University’s School of Public & Environmental Affairs.
“Retaining and attracting businesses to the region are vital for the economic health of our communities,” said Harold Gutzwiller, Manager of Member and Key Accounts for the G&T. “Christy’s broad experience in building a consensus on complex public policy issues, economic development and deep commitment to local communities will be an invaluable asset for our member electric cooperatives.”
