The Tuscaloosa County Industrial Development Authority has named Jo Bonner to serve as the interim executive director of the organization while a search is conducted to identify a candidate for the leadership position.

“TCIDA appreciates Jo assisting us with this transition,” said Claude Edwards, chairman of TCIDA. “His experience and knowledge will allow us to continue with our on-going efforts to create new, quality jobs for the citizens of Tuscaloosa County while positively contributing to our activities as we search for a new executive director.”

Bonner serves as Vice Chancellor for Economic Development at The University of Alabama System. He represented Alabama’s First District in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2003-2013. He was a member of the House Appropriations Committee, where he served on three key subcommittees, as well as the House Ethics Committee.

Bonner will serve as TCIDA interim executive director following the departure of Dara Longgrear, who announced his retirement after 31 years with TCIDA. Longgrear’s retirement was effective November 1.

The TCIDA board of directors will conduct the search for a permanent replacement in the coming months.
