Clarence Hulse, executive director of the Economic Development Corporation Michigan City, Indiana, has received industry honors for his work.
Hulse received fellow member status by the International Economic Development Council, which is given to IEDC members “who have displayed unusual stature in the field of economic development or related disciplines. This level of stature emerges through significant contributions to the profession by serving through the IEDC as well as academic endeavors.”
Hulse was recognized at the recent IEDC annual conference in Nashville, Tennessee.
“His outstanding achievements, hard work and dedicated service to the profession go above and beyond to improve the quality of life for others,” said Tom Kucharski, 2021 IEDC board chair and president & CEO of Invest Buffalo Niagara.
Hulse was humbled by the honor.
“The economic development arena is filled with so many hard-working and dedicated individuals who are toiling tirelessly to promote and spotlight their own communities that I am awed to be illuminated on this type of professional stage,” he said.
Hulse’s career has included stops in Florida and North Carolina before landing in Michigan City. He is credited with leading developments that have created more than 30,000 jobs and $3.5 billion in direct capital investment over the past 20 years.
