GOED division grows by two

Two more people recently joined the community development staff at the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.

The Nov. 27 additions of Adam Molseed and Lori Frederick bring the division to four.

They joined director Joe Fiala, who works from the Pierre office, and community development representative Scott Amundson, who is based in Langford.

Commissioner Scott Stern recently announced the hirings of Frederick and Molseed.

Their “knowledge, skills and passion for South Dakota” make them “great assets,” Fiala said in a statement.
