News from Gov. Bevin's Communications Office
FRANKFORT, KY (Wed 14 Dec 2016) - Gov. Matt Bevin today announced the appointment of Terry R. Gill, Jr. as Secretary of the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development.
The Cabinet is the primary state agency responsible for encouraging new jobs and investment in the state. Gov. Bevin says Gill is the right choice to help lead the Commonwealth to new heights.
"Kentucky is poised for unparalleled success in the years ahead," said Gov. Bevin. "Thanks to a new pro-business majority in the legislature and our focus on eliminating bureaucratic red tape, Kentucky is becoming more business-friendly by the day. Terry brings integrity, business competence and a passion for economic development that will foster a stronger environment for job creation in every region of Kentucky. The Commonwealth is on track to becoming the undisputed engineering and manufacturing hub of excellence in America."
Gill most recently served as President of OneTouchPoint, a $140MM marketing services organization. He was responsible for growth and M&A initiatives resulting in the creation of the largest privately held marketing services and technical printing company in the region.
Prior to OneTouchPoint, Gill served as the Vice President of EnterpriseCorp, the arm of Greater Louisville Inc., which is focused on increasing the number of high potential companies headquartered in the Louisville and Southern Indiana market. Before coming to EnterpriseCorp, he served as President and Chief Executive Officer of FetterGroup.
Gill holds a BA degree in Marketing with a Minor in Economics from the University of Kentucky. In addition to his charitable and civic involvement, he is a Board Member and serves on the Investment Committee for AccessVentures, a Louisville based impact investment firm.
"It's an honor to join the Bevin Administration," said Gill. "This is an exciting time and I'm anxious to get to work assisting our existing business community with the resources and assistance needed to continue their growth plans while attracting new high-growth companies to Kentucky. Over the past year Gov. Bevin has set the stage for the Cabinet for Economic Development with initiatives to reduce needless red tape and assist in workforce development. We have a lot of work to do, but given the incredible assets we possess, I'm confident we will succeed in growing the state's economic base."
Representatives of Kentucky's business community welcomed the appointment.
"I can think of no better person to run the Cabinet for Economic Development," said Luther Deaton, Chairman, President and CEO of Central Bank. "Terry's business background and passion for growing Kentucky's economy and creating jobs will be a tremendous boost for the Commonwealth."
Jean Hale, Chairman, President and CEO of Community Trust Bank, agrees.
"Community Trust Bank is a strong and active supporter of economic development and supports businesses at the local level throughout the state. We could not be more pleased with this selection," said Hale. "Having Terry lead the Cabinet for Economic Development will make a great organization even better."
Gill's appointment is effective January 1, 2017.
Since the Bevin Administration took office, more than 200 new manufacturing, service or technology-related facilities or expansions have been announced, which are expected to create nearly 15,000 new jobs and result in some $2.7 billion in investments in Kentucky.
