The interviews for DIA CEO will be at City Hall Wednesday, May 15.

Public interviews for the next Downtown Investment Authority CEO are on Wednesday, May 15, at City Hall.

Jacksonville City Council Member Lori Boyer announced last week she is one of three finalists in the Downtown Investment Authority's search for a new CEO. The other two candidates vying for the job are Kevin Hanna, former New Orleans Redevelopment Authority real estate development director, and a finalist in the DIA's 2013 CEO search; and Gregory Flisram, vice president of the Economic Development Corp. of Kansas City.

The two development professionals will join Boyer in a concluding round of interviews May 15 before the DIA Board.
