OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

The search is on in Owensboro for a new president and CEO of the Greater Owensboro Economic Development Corporation. 

Nick Brake held that position until he was selected to become the superintendent of the Owensboro Daviess County School District.  

62 people have applied for the job, and now those names will go to a third party who specializes in selecting economic development directors.

"The EDC covers so many aspects of our community, and we want to get that right. That all the people that are participating through the EDC have their say and their approval as to that final selection," said EDC Board Chair Fred May. 

May adds that the committee wants to reduce the final list to three to five applicants. Madison Silvert is currently serving as interim president and CEO of the EDC.
