Alexandria Economic Development Partnership names new president and CEO
Alexandria Economic Development Partnership’s board of directors has promoted Stephanie Landrum to president and CEO.
Landrum, who has worked for AEDP fore more than a decade, has been serving as the organization’s acting president and CEO since March 15. She replaces the partnership’s former leader, Val P. Hawkins, who retired.
Prior to serving as acting president and CEO, Landrum was the organization’s executive vice president and chief operating officer, a position that has since then been eliminated. This change allows Landrum to redeploy existing internal staff to updated roles and to hire several individuals for new positions.
As president and CEO, Landrum will continue the organization’s focus on local business formation and place-making efforts in the newer Alexandria neighborhoods of Carlyle, Potomac Yard and Landmark. She will also oversee partner organizations, including the new veteran-focused business initiative Capitol Post and the Alexandria Small Business Development Center.
