PEORIA, Ill. -- The Heartland Partnership of Peoria has a new name.

Now going by the Greater Peoria Business Alliance, the organization has a new structure, leadership and focus.

Instead of handling several different companies under its umbrella, the new Alliance will focus more on the CEO Council and Peoria Chamber of Commerce.

"In the old organization, we had lots of different things going on," said CEO Cal MacKay. "So we weren't as focused, we weren't as driven on very specific things. So we are looking at what we have done best in the past and focusing on that."

MacKay says that focus will be on the needs of private business and the regional business climate.
