CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP)   –   The Wyoming Business Council has announced a new CEO. Josh Dorrell will replace Shawn Reese, who announced in 2019 he was stepping aside after leading the state business-development agency for five years.

Dorrell is an executive with Laramie-based engineering and environmental consulting firm Trihydro Corp.

The council’s mission in recent years has faced scrutiny. Republican Gov. Mark Gordon has called for the organization to focus less on attracting big businesses and more on helping small businesses.

University of Wyoming College of Business Dean Steve Farkas also was a finalist for the job.
