The Tate County Economic Development Foundation

Jun 29, 2017 - Tate County, MS

From the Executive Committee

Tate County Economic Development Foundation

The Tate County Economic Development Foundation (EDF) Executive Committee regrets to announce Tim Climer's departure as Executive Director of the foundation, effective July 14, 2017.

Tim has played a critical role in the organization's recent success.  During his time in Tate County, which began in Jan., 2013, the EDF secured the Calbee North America project with 254 jobs and $53 million in capital investment, and the ABB project with 300 jobs and $30 million in capital investment. While we will miss him and his leadership, we wish Tim the best in his new endeavor as President/CEO of the Dyersburg/Dyer County Chamber of Commerce in Tennessee.  Please join us in thanking Tim for his years of dedicated service to Tate County.

The Executive Committee has already taken initial steps to secure a new EDF Executive Director.  While this process may continue for several months, it is our priority to hire the best qualified individual to serve our chamber members, as well as Tate County, the City of Senatobia, and the Town of Coldwater. Please be assured that during this transition period, the Tate County EDF and Senatobia Main Street will continue to function in the manner you have come to expect, maintaining a stable and effective organization.  We remain confident about the future of the Tate County EDF and Senatobia Main Street.

Again, we cannot thank Tim enough for his dedication to Tate County and the EDF.  He and his family will be greatly missed by all.  We look forward to following Tim's career and the success he will experience.
