The Board of Directors of Market Lubbock Inc. met in executive session Tuesday to accept the resignation of C. David Sharp. Mr. Sharp submitted his resignation last week, saying he has an opportunity to go into private business.
The board appointed Kenny McKay, Director of Business retention, as interim CEO.
"There are a lot of positive things going on right now. We're going to continue to push forward to bring more jobs to the region," said McKay.
"The vote was unanimous," said Board Chairman Mike Field. "We all felt that Kenny has done an excellent job with business retention for Market Lubbock, and we think he will do a great job keeping us moving forward until we name a new CEO."
According to Field, the search for a new Chief Executive Officer will be nationwide and will begin immediately. Sharp will remain on the job until May 9th.
