Rod Moseman, the Greater Omaha Chamber’s long-time senior vice president of economic development, has announced his plan to retire, effective December 31, 2013. Moseman has led the Chamber’s economic development department since coming to Omaha in 1978.
Over the years, the growth he has seen – and participated in – has been dramatic; from multiple downtown and riverfront development projects to numerous business expansions and re-locations across the region. A particular source of pride is his work to establish a “truly regional approach” to economic development via the Greater Omaha Economic Development Partnership. Operating out of the Chamber office, the Partnership serves as a one-stop shop for economic development needs. Since 2004, it has driven growth for the region by successfully landing 426 projects, representing nearly $4.3 billion in capital investment and 23,830 jobs.
In addition to spearheading the region’s cooperative economic development approach, the Chamber established the Partnership’s successful entrepreneurship and innovation program under Moseman’s leadership. Moreover, as co-chair of a statewide, four-year effort, Moseman was pivotal in bringing the Industrial Asset Management Council (IAMC) Fall Professional Forum and 10th Anniversary Celebration to Omaha in October 2012. The event drew rave reviews and more than 400 national leaders in corporate real estate to Omaha.
In addition to his role at the Greater Omaha Chamber, Moseman is executive director and corporate secretary of the Omaha Development Council, Omaha Development Foundation and Omaha Industrial Foundation.
The mission of the Greater Omaha Chamber is to increase business, investment and employment in the Greater Omaha area. For more information about the Greater Omaha Chamber, please call (402) 346-5000 or visit OmahaChamber.org.
