After six years as executive director of the Rockford-based I-39 Logistics Corridor Association, Janyce Fadden has resigned and is moving back to her hometown of Florence, Ala.
Eric Voyles has accepted the position of I-39 executive director, in addition to his role as vice president of National Business Development for the Rockford Area Economic Development Council. Paul J. Borek has accepted the position of I-39 deputy director, in addition to his role as executive director of the Sycamore, Ill.-based DeKalb County Economic Development Corporation.
“I will miss my colleagues and the friends I have made at the I-39 Association, but I have come to the personal decision that, at this stage in my life, I want to be closer to my family,” Fadden said. “I am proud of the association’s accomplishments during my tenure, and am confident that I am leaving its leadership in capable hands.”
Fadden received her bachelor of science degree in engineering and management from Clarkson University and her master of business administration degree from Northern Illinois University (DeKalb). In June 2004, she accepted the position of president of the Rockford Area Economic Development Council (RAEDC). In 2005, she was awarded “Alumna of the Year” by Northern Illinois University’s College of Business, where she was a member of the Rockford Alumni Board.
“The I-39 Logistics Corridor continues to validate its importance in the Chicago region among national and international corporations, site selectors, brokerage firms, developers and investors,” Fadden said. “The corridor is well positioned for the next wave of development.”
