Robert Langenkamp is stepping down as president and chief executive officer of the Economic Development Corporation of Kansas City, effective July 8.
His interim replacement is Greg Flisram, senior vice president of business and real estate development, who has been with EDCKC since 2014.
Langenkamp has held the position for five years, since Pete Fullerton resigned and went to the Kansas City Aviation Department, and his specific intentions for future employment have not been made public.
Langenkamp’s departure comes as EDCKC just moved its offices to the River Market from 11th and Walnut streets. During his tenure the organization considered $5 billion in capital investment projects.
“Bob stepped in at a crucial juncture for the EDC and really made a huge impact,” says Bridgette Williams, Chair, EDCKC Board of Directors. “We support Bob and his decision and we look forward to what the future holds in store for him.”
