Evan Rowe named DEED Commissioner


The Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) announces south Minneapolis resident Evan Rowe as its new Deputy Commissioner of Workforce Services and Operations. Rowe was selected to fill the position after having served in the role in an acting capacity the past six months. Rowe joined DEED in June 2020 and is a key leader in modernizing the services that Minnesotans rely upon. That includes transforming DEED’s digital services: from launching the Workforce One Connect mobile app, which connects customers with their employment service case managers, to the deployment of a new mobile-friendly look and feel for Minnesota’s Unemployment Insurance application - which is now available in four languages. He is also the executive sponsor for DEED’s Innovation Lab, a collaborative effort to design new solutions grounded in Human Centered Design to meet some of the toughest challenges the agency faces. Before joining DEED, Rowe served as the first Chief Commercial Officer for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.
