GREENVILLE – Darke County Economic Director Marc Saluk said goodbye to friends and colleagues at a luncheon in his honor on Feb. 25. Saluk is leaving at the end of the month to take a similar position in New Jersey.
Saluk said, “The time I’ve spent as economic development director here has been the most rewarding of my professional career. What we have all achieved together through the Partnering for Progress initiative has really shown me what can be accomplished when a great team stays focused on an important task for a prolonged period of time.” He continued, “I’ll never forget what the team has accomplished, the strength of the partnership, and the friends I have made. I’ll always be a resource for Darke County and absolutely will remain in touch with those I worked with here.”
He is tasked with a similar job in Hunterdon County, New Jersey as he will be heading up the county’s first public-private economic development effort. He said, “Hunterdon County, NJ has a lot going for it and the team in place is excited about what’s in front of us. I look forward to the challenge and think we’ll have great success.”
