JACKSON, MI-Consumers Energy has named Bruce Rasher to lead the utility’s economic development efforts. Rasher will work with federal, state, regional and local government officials and agencies plus private sector organizations and individuals to help develop a stronger economy in Michigan, according to the company.

“Bruce already has established a record of success in economic development, both at Consumers Energy and as a local community leader.
