Eckmann accepts job at UW-Stevens Point


STEVENS POINT (WAOW) – A top administrator in job-creation efforts in Marathon County has accepted a new job at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.

Chancellor Bernie Patterson said Wednesday that David Eckmann was named a special assistant for economic development at the university. He begins July 1.

“UW-Stevens Point will be one of the first comprehensive universities in the state to have a staff member who is focused entirely on creating and strengthening economic development partnerships between the business community and the university,” Patterson said in a statement.

Eckmann, of Schofield, has been economic development director for the Marathon County Development Corporation since 2007, working with municipal and corporate leaders to develop, implement and monitor entrepreneurial and workforce development programs in the county.

He recently represented the county on Gov. Scott Walker's trade mission to China.
