Cheyenne LEADS announced Tuesday that Betsey Hale has been named the organization's new Chief Executive Officer.

Hale currently serves as the President of Three Rivers Development Corporation, a 54-year-old economic and community development organization in Corning, New York. Prior to that, she worked for the City of Loveland, Colorado.

"I am so excited to be engaged in economic development on behalf of the City of Cheyenne, Laramie County and the State of Wyoming," said Hale.

"With Wyoming’s adoption of 13 blockchain enabling laws, the growing diversification in the energy and agriculture sectors, Cheyenne’s location at the intersection of I-25 and I-80, as well as being the northern gateway to the Front Range, we are poised for substantial economic growth," she added.

Hale succeeds longtime CEO Randy Bruns, who announced his retirement in August 2019.
