Meet Lawton-Fort Sill Economic Development Corporation’s new Executive Vice-President, Brad Cooksey

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- The Lawton-Fort Sill Economic Development Corporation has a new Executive Vice-President. Brad Cooksey was named to the position just two days and is expected to take on the role as President by the end of the year.

Cooksey is a long-time Lawton resident who began his professional career as a teacher and coach at Eisenhower High School. After that, he worked in the insurance and commercial real estate industries. Cooksey says he's looking forward to using all the knowledge he's gained to help make Lawton a better place to live and work.

"Lawton means a great deal to me and hopefully this position will allow me to have a positive impact, whether it be growth in numbers, or the economy or anything like that,” said Cooksey.

Cooksey says right now he's trying to soak up as much as he can from the interim president. Then, after he takes on the role of President, his focus will be on bringing in new jobs.
