Flagship Enterprise Center names interim head
DeWayne Landwehr has been named interim executive director of the Flagship Enterprise Center in Anderson.
Most recently, Landwehr served as director of operations at the Anderson Business Incubator. Dur
ing his 18 months there, Landwehr identified clients and assessed their prospects.
Landwehr also established one of only two Madison County sustainable forests as certified by the American Tree Farm Sys
tem. He started the wood products business with 20,000 trees after retiring from Guide Corp. in 2000.
The bulk of Landwehr’s career since coming to Anderson in 1963 was spent with Guide, a unit of General Motors Corp., where he’d been a director of product engineering.
He replaces Art Patterson, who is leaving to pursue other interests. He’d been head of the center since September 2004.
The Flagship Enterprise Center, an incubator for startups, opened in 2005 through a partnership between Anderson University and the city of Anderson.
