The Indy Partnership, which works to to a lure business to the region, has a new executive director.

Marty Vanags, the CEO of the Bloomington-Normal Economic Development Council in Illinois, will start work March 1, the Greater Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce announced late Thursday.

The Indy Partnership became a business unit of the chamber last May in a merger that included Develop Indy, which does the same work on behalf of Marion County.

“Marty brings a strong track record of securing capital investment and attracting new jobs,” Indy Chamber CEO Scott Miller said in a prepared statement. “The nine-county Indianapolis region will benefit from his extensive experience in economic development as we pursue attracting new jobs and capital investment from around the country.”

Prior to joining the Bloomington-Normal Economic Development Council in 2004, Vanags worked as executive director of the Freeport Downtown Development Foundation and in various economic development capacities in Rockford, Illinois and Village of Machesney Park, Ill.
