Before that, he was vice president of EnterpriseCorp, a division of Greater Louisville Inc. that focuses on increasing the number of high-potential companies headquartered in the Louisville area. He was named to that position in December 2014 and left in July 2015.

Before coming to EnterpriseCorp, he was president and CEO of FetterGroup, a Louisville-based printing company.

Gill holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing with a minor in economics from the University of Kentucky. In addition to his charitable and civic involvement, he is a board member and serves on the Investment Committee for AccessVentures, a Louisville-based impact investment firm.

Bevin had not named an economic development secretary since taking office last December. The previous secretary was Erik Dunnigan, whom the previous governor, Steve Beshear, named as acting secretary when Larry Hayes announced his retirement in November 2015.
