Official from New Orleans to take role in Detroit

DETROIT (AP) - The president and CEO of the New Orleans Business Alliance has been hired to lead an organization that focuses on drawing and keeping businesses in Detroit.

The nonprofit Detroit Economic Growth Corp. on Friday announced the hiring of Rodrick T. Miller, who currently leads the private-public partnership supporting business growth in New Orleans.

In a statement, Miller says his goal is to leverage Detroit's assets and work with the city and its residents to "make an even better Detroit."

Miller also has experience as a consultant to governments involved in large-scale infrastructure projects.

Miller starts on Sept. 15. He succeeds George Jackson, who announced this year he was stepping down to start his own consulting firm.
