Mike Kazmierski resigned this morning from his position as president and CEO of the Colorado Springs Economic Development Corp.
His resignation is effective June 30.
Board member Debbie Chandler, who is also CEO of Colorado Springs Health Partners, said the decision was voluntary, however board members had been at odds with Kazmierski about the direction of the EDC for some time.
“With all the new leadership on the City Council and the mayor’s office, he felt this was a good time to leave,” she said.
Board chairman Doug Quimby will serve as interim CEO while the organization begins a national search for a replacement.
Kazmierski declined to comment.
He had served as CEO since 2005 and as COO from 2001 to 2005.
