Kansas City Mayor Sly James said Monday that Pete Fullerton has resigned as president and chief executive officer of the city’s Economic Development Corp.
The announcement said Fullerton, who has led the city’s business attraction and retention agency since March 2012, is “moving on to a different career opportunity in the region.”
Bob Langenkamp, the city’s assistant city manager and director of city planning and development, will serve as interim president and CEO of the agency.
Fullerton was not available for further comment about his job change.
“Pete has worked diligently to help mold the EDC into an organization focused on job growth, and I am thankful to have worked with such a genuine professional,” the mayor said in a press release. “Pete’s dedicated work ethic and attention to detail will benefit him greatly in the next chapter of his career.”
Langenkamp has worked for Kansas City since 1989. He has been an assistant city manager since 2009. This is his second time to act as interim president of the Economic Development Corp. He is on the boards of the Kansas City Port Authority, the Jazz District Redevelopment Corporation, and the Downtown Council among other organizations.
The EDC oversees six redevelopment agencies under the Kansas City umbrella.
