Hill said it's a tough job to fill.
"There's a variety of talents that we listed in the job description with the understanding that we're probably not going to find someone who fills all of them," he said.
"We're looking for someone that has at least some of those areas that would be a good fit for the park moving forward."
When Halstead resigned, Hill said the Tech Park was "entering a new phase to diversify the tenant base."
Hill said this week that since the state took over the Tech Park in 2010, much of the work has focused on renovating the facilities to get them up to code and prepare them for new tenants.
He said the new phase would focus more heavily on recruiting businesses for those renovated spaces.
"It's a logical step for this person to focus on now bringing new tenants to fill up the space," he said.
Hill said the board would like to have someone in place by July 1 but the date is flexible.
"It is very early," he said. "We've had some people express interest and some information has been trickling in.
"That was part of the reason why we wanted to get out there and collect those resumes," he said. "We're looking forward to getting those in and finding a new director that can lead the park forward."
