Geppert Named Interim CEO of Economic Development in San Diego

7/14/11

William “Bill” Geppert, who retired just five months ago as the head of Cox Communications in San Diego, has stepped in to serve as interim CEO of the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corp. (EDC). Geppert, a Cox senior vice president and general manager, agreed to serve until the end of 2011. He is not a candidate for the permanent position, according to a statement issued late Wednesday by the EDC. The vacancy was created after Barry Broome, the head of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, changed his mind after publicly accepting the top post at San Diego’s EDC. Geppert is a longtime EDC board member and business leader.
