About Paul Jadin
Paul Jadin joined MadREP as President in November 2012. Prior to that, Paul served as both the Secretary of Commerce and Secretary/ CEO of the new Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation since January 2011. He was charged with transitioning from a state agency that had responsibility for economic development and regulatory activities to a public/ private authority that is 100% focused on economic development. That reorganization has brought an expanded emphasis on international activities, with networks being developed in over a dozen countries; it has fostered a significant investment in entrepreneurship and innovation; and it has enabled the state to better understand and support its key industry sectors.
“The work Paul and his MadREP team are doing will not impact you, your company, our community or Wisconsin today. This is what I needed to learn about Paul’s work… It is the difficult work of future planning that will be impactful in 10+plus years down the road. It is this mature, thoughtful, long term strategy that will continue to make our community shine even brighter as a place to live and work for the future.”
