Mathew to resign CEO post at ERC

Gil Mathew, the CEO of the Nevada County Economic Resource Council, announced his resignation today from the entity effective at the end of the year.

Mathew, 68, served in the position for three years and intends to pursue an opportunity in the private business sector. He would not elaborate on his new business at this time.

Originally from Southern California, Mathew earned a B.A. from Chapman University in Orange County. He moved to Nevada County in 1981 and shortly thereafter opened a manufacturing company, Benchmark Thermal.

His highlights in his tenure at the ERC included landing the California Preservation Foundation’s annual conference for Grass Valley and Nevada City this May, the economic tour of Nevada County which highlighted area manufacturing and the Economic Forecast Conference, held in May in conjunction with the U.S. Federal Reserve, Mathew said.

Recently the ERC suffered a setback when it failed to win a $7.7 million grant for broadband service for all of Nevada County.
