MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The fourth chief financial officer in less than four years at the Wisconsin agency charged with job creation and economic development is leaving.

Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation spokesman Mark Maley said Friday that CFO Stephanie Walker is resigning in mid-January to join her husband who took a job in the Washington, D.C. area.

Walker, who is no relation to Gov. Scott Walker, has been CFO since June 2013.

Maley says a search for her replacement will begin immediately.

Earlier this month Ryan Murray, the agency’s chief operating officer, left to take a job lobbying the state Legislature.

WEDC was created by the governor and Legislature in 2011 as a semi-private operation to retain and attract businesses to the state. It’s been beset with high turnover in top leadership positions.
