Celebrating Jim Roolf’s Decades of Leadership
Jim Roolf, a longtime member of the CED Board of Directors, past Chairman, and Frank Turk Jr. Award recipient, attended his final meeting as a regular member of the Board in May.
Jim has represented First Midwest Bank (soon to be Old National Bank) for more than 20 years with the CED. With a clear vision of the economic development possibilities for Will County, Jim worked on or chaired many important committees, coalitions, and councils that helped move Will County forward. Among his many accomplishments Jim served on the Illinois Tollway Board at a critical time and helped lead the development of the long-promised I-355 extension, one of many important Will County projects for which Jim has been an essential catalyst.
Jim has been a fierce advocate for Will County and we are excited that he will continue to work with the CED through committees and working groups offering his experience, knowledge, and humor. Thank you, Jim, for being a strong leader and for all of your work to help the CED and Will County be more successful!
