14 News has learned who will be the next Interim President and CEO of the Greater Owensboro Economic Development Corporation.

Current Vice President Madison Silvert will take over when Dr. Nick Brake leaves for his new job as superintendent of Owensboro Public Schools on July 1.

"I think we have strategy that's working at the Economic Development Corporation in Owensboro and in Daviess County, and so I'm going to do the best that I can to maintain the legacy that Dr. Brake has brought to this organization and keep moving forward," says Silvert. "Our work's not done yet. There's a lot to be done."

Silvert can apply for the permanent CEO position. The Board has created a five-member search committee and will advertise the job both locally and nationally.
