PRINCETON — Mark Peterson, president of Intersect Illinois, the state of Illinois Economic Development Marketing Partnership, will be featured speaker at the North Central Illinois Economic Development (NCI) Investor Reception on Thursday, March 22.

Peterson is a graduate of St. John Fisher College and Kent State University. He directs the Intersect Illinois staff on all domestic and international marketing activities, and coordinates efforts with local and regional economic development organizations in Illinois, including NCI.

North Central Illinois Economic Development Corp. is 18 months old, and is the designated new public-private partnership promoting the locational advantages of Bureau, LaSalle and Putnam counties for new industrial investment.
