The Alexandria Economic Development Partnership (AEDP) named Stephanie Landrum as president and CEO of the organization on Thursday, April 30. Landrum had been serving as acting president and CEO since former President and CEO Val Hawkins stepped down in March. Landrum has worked at AEDP for 10 years and previously served as the organization’s vice president.
The AEDP is a public-private partnership funded by the City of Alexandria that acts as a business advocacy organization.
“Our established commercial districts in Old Town and Del Ray are healthy and thriving, so our focus has turned to placemaking efforts and recruitment of businesses and investors in Carlyle, Potomac Yard and Landmark,” said Landrum. “We will be building out our research and economic resources, finding more ways to partner with our neighbors in Arlington and D.C. to promote our region to audiences outside of the Metro area and recruiting events that draw and expose targeted industries to Alexandria.”
Details on compensation and benefits are still in negotiation between the Executive Committee and staff.
