The FEDA Executive Committee recently announced that it had hired Tracy Mulqueen, CAE as Deputy Executive Vice President effective March 27, 2017. Mulqueen will assume the role of Executive Vice President April 1, 2018 when current EVP Ray Herrick retires after 35 years in the position.

Tracy joins FEDA after more than 25 years of successful experience as an association CEO. Most recently she served as President and Chief Executive Officer for the Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Partnership for the past twelve and a half years.

Ray Herrick commented "Tracy is a true association professional who will serve the membership well for many years to come. Our members will thoroughly enjoy getting to know Tracy as I know I have. I am looking forward to working with her over the next year."

FEDA President Joe Schmitt shared "We had more than 30 qualified candidates and Tracy became the clear candidate of choice after several interviews with executive committee members. She is a professional that will serve as an outstanding leader for our membership and staff for the coming years."

Tracy will be attending the FEDA 2017 annual convention this April and will be introduced to the membership and industry.
