Crain’s Chicago Business has named LCP’s president and CEO as one of the year’s notable leaders in community development. Under Kevin Considine’s leadership, Lake County Partners has fueled nearly $500 million in direct investment, driving the creation of 3,560 jobs and the retention of 4,195 jobs over the last four years alone. With a federal grant, LCP recently completed a 12-month project creating a five-year Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy. LCP convened a diverse set of stakeholders to align priorities and ensure that equity is at the heart of the county’s economic recovery. This plan addresses topics often seen as social service issues (affordable housing, early childhood and college access) as economic issues. To protect underserved areas, LCP established a partnership among major life sciences corporations to provide pop-up vaccine clinics.
