Macomb County announces new deputy director for the Department of Planning and Economic Development

County officials today announced Jeff Schroeder as the new deputy director of the Macomb County Department of Planning and Economic Development (MCPED). Schroeder most recently served as a MCPED program director for planning and GIS mapping services. His promotion fills a position previously held by Vicky Rad, who was appointed director of MCPED in April.


“Jeff’s 26 years of experience with the planning and economic development department made him a great candidate for the deputy director position,” said Vicky Rad, director of MCPED. “His extensive knowledge and leadership ability will be an asset in his new role, where he will help oversee and implement the department’s overall strategic plan.”

Throughout his tenure with MCPED, Schroeder focused on a broad range of regional and local planning and policy issues. He also led work related to Macomb County’s Brownfield Program, community planning, grant administration, recreation and non-motorized planning, community visioning and placemaking.

Schroeder has a master’s degree in urban planning from the University of Michigan, along with an undergraduate degree in land use planning from Northern Michigan University. He received his AICP certification from the American Planning Association and currently belongs to the American Planning Association and the American Planning Association: Michigan Chapter. Schroeder is also a graduate of Leadership Macomb - Class XIX.
