LOGANSPORT — NOTE: Due to an incorrect press release, an earlier version of this article misstated John Hipskind's name. We regret the error.

The Cass-Logansport Economic Development Organization appointed John Hipskind its interim director this week, according to a press release from the organization.

Formerly vice president of sales and marketing for MW Industries from 2008 to 2012, Hipskind was also secretary for the local economic development organization in the early 2000s.

"He was far and away the best qualified candidate," said board chair Jim Hayden. "He ran a business, he knows the key players in our community."
