Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh has announced that Julie Mussog will be the new CEO of the Anne Arundel County Development Corp. Mussog’s previous position was as the county Controller.
The Capital Gazette reports:
Mussog will take charge of the economic development corporation, a quasi-public agency that tries to attract business to the county, beginning Nov. 1, according to Schuh’s office. Assistant Controller Laureen Toney will fill in as acting controller until a permanent replacement is found.
As controller, Mussog has led the finance department, which issues debt, collects taxes and oversees spending of county money in accordance with the budget.
Former County Executive Laura Neuman hired Mussog for the post in August 2013. Mussog was one of the few Neuman appointees Schuh retained after he was elected in 2014.
In a statement, Schuh said Mussog is “a perfect person to help harness the economic potential of our county.”
“Her knowledge and expertise in tax-incremental financing, coupled with her economic development experience in the private sector, will help ensure we aggressively pursue every opportunity to attract businesses to our county,” he said.
