MONTGOMERY, AL. (AP) - Alabama's chief industrial recruiter, Neal Wade, is leaving to work for the St. Joe Co. in the Florida Panhandle.

St. Joe announced that Wade will be senior vice president for economic development. Wade worked for St. Joe before Gov. Bob Riley appointed him director of the Alabama Development Office in 2003. During Wade's tenure at ADO, he helped recruit ThyssenKrupp Steel, Hyundai Heavy Industries and Austal USA.

St. Joe President Britt Greene calls Wade one of the most successful economic development leaders in the nation. Wade's new job will focus on St. Joe's commercial development next to the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport in Panama City Beach.
