Nebraska loses major corporate HQ, fires ex-WEDC VP as development director

WEDC has had a dizzingly spinning revolving door - - including four senior departures this summer and a fifth Chief Financial Officer recently arriving  - - and its effects are being felt farther west on the Plains.

Nebraska's Governor just fired the state's economic development director  - - a former VP of development at WEDC on the job in Nebraska for just eight months - - after the agricultural giant and Fortune 500 firm ConAgra announced it was moving its headquarters and about 1,000 jobs from Omaha to Chicago.

If the WEDC were a politician, you'd say it has awfully short coattails.
