MADC ANNOUNCES ERIC DEWERD AS NEW BOARD MEMBER
The Middleton Area Development Corporation (MADC), a private loan fund used to promote economic development, has announced the appointment of Eric Deward to its Board of Directors. Mr. DeWerd, President and co-owner of Standard Imaging Inc., a Middleton based manufacturer of radiation calibration and quality assurance instruments, brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in areas of business development, financial analysis, and sales and executive management. Eric, is a graduate of UW Madison, where, as an intern during school, he began his career with Standard Imaging. Becoming a co-owner of the company in 2014, and while continuing sales and management position, he received his MBA in Executive Education from UW Madison in 2017. Kevin Mahaney, President of MADC, remarked that “Eric is a great addition to our MADC Board with his vast experience in the medical science industry. His role in the MIddleton business community closely aligns with MADC. Eric will be a valuable contributor to our long term efforts in Middleton.”
MADC was originally formed in the late 1970's to begin Middleton's economic development efforts, however, our nation's tough economic times of the mid 1980's forced the group to cease operations. Things changed, and our economy improved, and beginning in 2000, recognizing the need and opportunity to help grow Middleton, MADC was reincorporated, and in 2003 a new agreement between MADC and the City of Middleton was created that still exists today.
Today, MADC Board members all share a common goal of growing Middleton and surrounding area, by providing a variety of loan opportunities to facilitate economic development in our area.

Simply put, Middleton is just a great little community. A great place to work, a great place to live, and a great place to be from.
Middleton is calls itself the Good Neighbor City, it is a a description that applies not only for the people who live in the city, but also the relationships with the businesses and corporations located in the city as well. Middleton is the corporate headquarters for companies like Spectrum Brands, American Girl, Fiskars International, and Electronic Theatre Controls in part because it combines geographic availability, attractive incentives and a willingness to work in partnership to grow with each other. In concert with this, Middleton offers a quality lifestyle of living, dining, retail, and recreational opportunities for its citizens, and employees of these companies.
The opportunities are not limited only to large corporations, and at MADC we work with all size businesses interested in expansion within, or relocating to Middleton. The city of Middleton offers much more that similar size cities of 20,000 residents, and from a business and economic development perspective, the Middleton Area Development Corporation is a key attribute making it better than most.
