Regional planning alliance president resigns

The president of the West Michigan Strategic Alliance said Tuesday that he will resign from the post, effective at the end of the year. Greg Northrup was named the president of the nonprofit regional planning agency in late 2005. In a press release Tuesday, Northrup said he is pursuing several alternative energy project options. Ottawa County Administrator Al Vanderberg, chairman of the alliance's Board of Directors, said the organization made significant progress under Northrup's leadership.

“He guided WMSA through many major achievements as an organization, and established a track record for state and national best practices,” Vanderberg said.

Vanderberg said the board plans to launch a search for a new president as soon as possible.

The West Michigan Strategic Alliance was established in 2000 as a catalyst for regional collaboration among businesses, institutions and governmental units serving 1.4 million residents of an eight-county region.
