George Gotto Selected as PCDI Interim Executive Director



(LAMAR, COLORADO) – “Focus your attention on what you are building.”  The words of Nikki Rowe hold very true to what the board of directors of Prowers County Development, Incorporated (PCDI) is dedicated to doing.  The organization is determined to bring about a new focus that will provide the results that Prowers County residents expect and deserve in their economic development group.

The board of directors has been considering what skills and responsibilities the organization and our investors expect from the new executive director since the February departure of the previous director.  PCDI President Rick Robbins said, “Our number one priority is to fill this position with the right person for the right time. We, as a board, did not want to rush to fill the void until we take the needed time construct the proper job description and qualifications. The board felt that while taking the time needed to do this we did not want to place all the pressure on Carla [Scranton, business manager] to keep PCDI’s goals moving forward.”

George-Gotto-WEBThe board had a productive discussion about PCDI priorities with longtime Lamar resident George Gotto.  The decision was made to name Gotto as the interim executive director.  Robbins said, “George can be our voice with present businesses and start communicating our newly focused goals. George brings a valuable mix of knowledge from managing businesses to viewing from the lending perspective.”

Gotto recently retired after a long and celebrated career in business and banking.  Before retirement, he was the Lamar branch president of Colorado East Bank and Trust.

The board of directors is determined to set PCDI on a path to ensure growth of Prowers County.  Therefore, it is necessary to take the time needed to find an executive director that can produce the results for which all Prowers County residents and business owners can be proud. Gotto will continue to serve as the interim executive director until a permanent replacement can be hired.
