In 1989, a group of concerned Ozaukee County leaders, including Rose Hass Leider, Mark Grams and John Stackman, met with Ralph Huiras, attorney and former Ozaukee County Board Chair, to discuss the economy of Ozaukee County. As a result of this meeting, ten public and private sector people met in July of 1989, at the urging of Ralph Huiras, to establish a 501 C6 non-profit corporation known as the Ozaukee County Economic Development Corporation (OCEDC).

In addition, OCEDC opened its new office in the Ozaukee County Administration Center in downtown Port Washington and launched a new web site, www.OzaukeeBusiness.org. As part of its continuing efforts to market the county, OCEDC began doing business as Ozaukee Economic Development (OED).
