Hampton Roads Economic Development Alliance
2016 was a rebuilding, yet emerging, year in the strategic re-focus of The Hampton Roads Economic Development Alliance, with the advent of new leadership and highly collaborative strategic mission development. The City Manager served as the Vice Chairman of the Alliance in 2016, and staff played an active role in helping to move the organization forward. Hampton Roads localities came together during 2016 to re-commit their support to the Alliance, while private sector engagement increased as well. Aggressive and more focused marketing activities continued throughout 2016, and Hampton Roads saw numerous companies invest and create jobs as a result of the Alliance’s activities.
