Macon County officials announced last week that the county’s EDC Director, Trevor Dalton, had resigned from his position on Sept. 11. Dalton served Macon County for more than two years before deciding to change his career path. In his resignation letter, Dalton wrote that he wanted to “further my education and career in the private sector.”
Dalton was hired in the summer of 2009 after an extensive 10-month search by the county’s economic development commission. EDC members were impressed with Dalton’s financial background and his experience in software development. The commission was also enthused with Dalton’s youth, as it coincided with one of the EDC’s main priorities of keeping young local talent in Macon County.
