Jim McCulloh has retired after 20 years with the Weitz Co., most recently as senior vice president. He was involved in the successful completion of more than 40 projects. Most recently, he provided executive oversight on the Hilton Des Moines Downtown – a $101 million public-private partnership between Polk County, the city of Des Moines and Weitz. "Jim McCulloh is an extraordinary leader in our company and community," Mike Tousley, executive vice president and general manager for Weitz, said in a release. "He went out of his way to get to know people to develop real relationships – real friendships – with the decision makers and leaders in our community and industry. His ability to connect with such a diverse group of organizations and leaders is something that we will greatly miss." McCulloh was president or chairman on several community boards, served on dozens of committees and councils, and has been active in United Way for nearly 40 years, according to a release. Most recently, he was board president of Youth Emergency Services and Shelter and a member of the ChildServe board of trustees. Before joining Weitz, McCulloh worked for Mid America Group for 19 years and was community development director in Urbandale for nearly five years.
