Economic group’s picks will try to bring jobs to the Boise Valley

The Treasure Valley’s economic development group selected two local executives to head its initiative to create 11,000 new jobs and add $300 million to the local payroll in the next five years.

The Valley Initiative for Prosperity (ViP), a public-private group, aims to raise $5 million in the next five years to make the Treasure Valley an attractive place for businesses to relocate.

ViP’s campaign cabinet said Friday it elected Joel Hickman, president of KeyBank Idaho, and Paul Street, general counsel of Building Materials Holding Corp., to co-chair the initiative.

"The selection of Joel Hickman and Paul Street vastly strengthens the vital ViP campaign," said Ed Dahlberg, president and chief executive officer of St. Luke’s Regional Medical Center and a member of the ViP campaign cabinet. "It’s terrific to have folks from both finance and industry driving the program."
