Ochoa resigns from McPier

May 5, 2010

Juan Ochoa's resignation comes as the state legislature is working on restructuring operations at McCormick Place. The convention center is under pressure after losing business because of high costs.

Ochoa was appointed three years ago as CEO of the Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority, or McPier, by then Governor Rod Blagojevich.

Ochoa says he is leaving to devote time to lobbying for immigration reform legislation.
