Paul Hiller, executive director of the Boise Valley Economic Partnership (BVEP), has announced his retirement. Hiller has led BVEP for the past four years.
“We are grateful to Paul for having helped establish this partnership and we wish him well in his retirement,” said BVEP Chairman Elwood Kleaver, adding that BVEP will begin the process of searching for a new executive director immediately.
He noted that a prospective unspecified business looking to relocate its operation is scheduled to arrive in the area this week for a site visit, and that several other potential projects are in the works.
“BVEP will continue to be a vital economic engine for the Boise valley,” Kleaver said.
