Business Development Manager Opportunity

The Rockford Area Economic Development Council (RAEDC) partners with business, government, and educational leaders to strengthen and expand Rockford and Winnebago County’s economic opportunities and improve the lives of everyone who calls the Stateline home.

To continue our region’s economic momentum, we’re pleased to announce that we’re adding a Business Development Manager to our team. If you’re a skilled relationship builder, possess superior communication skills, and understand the principles of business, we’d like to talk with you.

The Business Development Manager will conduct business retention visits, stay apprised of governmental business support and incentive programs, identify business growth projects, and help identify economic assistance and financial resources for business expansions and relocations.

The Business Development Manager will be a key member of a small, but mighty, team. A bachelor’s degree in business or public administration, economics, finance, or other related field with 2-5 years of experience is preferred. Knowledge of manufacturing and exceptional communication and time management skills are ideal.
