University Research Park (URP) at the University of Wisconsin (UW)-Madison has selected Aaron Olver, head of the city of Madison’s economic development office, to serve as managing director starting September 8th. “Aaron has extensive experience as a leader on economic development in the Madison region and across the state,” says Rebecca Blank, chancellor at UW-Madison and chairwoman of the research park’s board of trustees. “He has the skills to lead University Research Park as it grows and changes.” Opened in 1984, URP houses 126 start-ups based on UW-Madison technologies, which together employ 3,600 people. In addition to the main campus, Olver will oversee development of URP’s second campus, which was launched in 2009. Source: Wisconsin State Journal
