Bill Mahoney

The CEO of the South Carolina Research Authority is stepping down to return to the private sector.

Bill Mahoney has spent almost 11 years working for state-chartered agency.

A replacement has not been named, spokeswoman Micki MacNaughton said in an email.

“Working to grow South Carolina’s knowledge economy has been a highlight of my career,” Mahoney said in a statement. “It has been an honor to have led and served the dedicated clients, partners and associates of SCRA who are so dramatically advancing South Carolina’s technology ecosystem.”
