Christopher J. Schoepflin will be named to fill one of two vacancies on the Erie Canal Harbor Development Corp. Board of Directors, sources say.
Schoepflin is a regional director with Empire State Development. He is also president of the subsidiary USA Niagara Development Corp., which promotes economic development in Niagara Falls.
Schoepflin's announcement -- and possibly the appointment of one more board member -- is expected to be made in the coming weeks. One of the seven-member board's two vacancies stemmed from Sam Hoyt's abrupt resignation in late October over a sexual harassment allegation.
