Staunton names assistant director of economic development
Courtland Robinson has been named Staunton’s assistant director of economic development. He replaces Amanda Glover, who accepted the position of director of economic development in Augusta County last August.
Robinson previously worked for the Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport. As a graduate assistant at James Madison University (JMU), Robinson worked for the university as well as Harrisonburg Downtown Renaissance, the Shenandoah Valley Partnership and the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission. In these positions he provided research, web and social media support, marketing assistance, policy analysis and grant writing.
“We are very pleased to welcome Courtland to the Staunton team,” Bill Hamilton, Staunton’s director of economic development said in a statement. “His strong knowledge of the region, combined with his background in urban planning and economic development make him an excellent choice.”
