Devreco gets an offshore wind development grant from the state of MD for $100k. Because...you know...they're experts on wind power.
Devreco and Gillis Gilkerson hire Meredith Mears as Chief Development Officer. Mears is currently Director for Worcester County Economic Development.
The project is supposed to start in February. Mears starts in February. Did Mears work with Devreco in an arrangement that brought her benefits via a new job? It wouldn't be unreasonable to think that the county's Economic Development Director would be connected enough to steer public grants in a particular direction, and have access to information not readily available to competitors.
