Erie Insurance CEO and President of Erie Downtown Development Corporation (EDDC) Tim NeCastro names John Persinger first CEO of the EDDC.

NeCastro has announced that he has hired a CEO to lead the EDDC.  NeCastro, who already has a CEO title for Erie Insurance, knows what the job looks like and is a grand compliment for Persinger, who had just run for mayor for the city of Erie.

Persinger ran an impressive and ambitious campaign, citing things like 100 properties in 100 days for his ‘Recreate Erie Initiative’ and donating 30 Amazon Kindles to students as part of his ‘Great Schools Initiative’.

No word yet on what day Persinger will begin, but we will have more for you on this on Action News at noon and at 5.
