City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz has named Nancy Radzevich as the Evanston’s new economic development manager.

Radzevich, who started work today, comes to Evanston from Boston where she had worked since 2007 as vice president for planning and permitting for the Massachusetts Development Finance Agency.

MassDevelopment is the state’s finance and development authority working with private and public-sector clients to stimulate economic growth by eliminating blight, preparing key sites for development, creating jobs and increasing the state’s housing supply.

Prior to her work at MassDevelopment, Radzevich was the chief planner for the City of Newton, Mass., for seven years and has worked in other key planning and development positions in both Massachusetts and Illinois.

She is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP), has a bachelor’s degree in architectural studies from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana and a master’s degree in urban planning and policy from the University of Illinois, Chicago.

Radzevich will head the economic development team within the city’s Community and Economic Development Department.
