MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) - A former C-E-O of one of Milwaukee’s biggest industries will head Governor Scott Walker’s Office of Business Development.

Tim Sullivan ran Bucyrus (beoo-sigh’-rus) International before it was sold to Caterpillar last year. Today, Walker told a business conference in Madison that Sullivan will also chair the state’s Council on Workforce Investment, and he’ll serve on the College and Workforce Readiness Council. Sullivan will serve without pay as what the governor called a “special consultant” for Walker’s efforts to boost the economy and create jobs.

The governor said Sullivan will be a great asset because of his experience in the private sector, especially in manufacturing. Since leaving Bucyrus, Sullivan has also been involved with a business group that supports the proposed iron ore mine in Ashland and Iron counties.
