New President and CEO of Economic Development Corporation

The Board of Directors of the Montgomery County Economic Development Corporation has announced that David Petr will become the first president and Chief Executive Officer of the new public/private venture beginning September 6. Petr joins MCEDC from the Central Florida Development Council, Inc., where he was the president and CEO.

As the former president and CEO of the Central Florida Development Council, Petr successfully transitioned the organization from a public/private partnership to a private organization, while achieving record-setting job creation and capital investment results during his tenure. The MCEDC Board believes his unique talents in organizational transformation and team building, while running a high-performing economic development program, will align well to the immediate and long-term needs of MCEDC.

Petr expressed his excitement to come to Montgomery County and to be part of the bold, new public/private partnership. "There's never been a better time for Montgomery County. I am honored to fuel prosperity as one of the many leaders of the organization. Collaboration and creativity will drive us to deliver results for the residents of the County and region, and enhance our collective quality of life."

Last year the Council approved the reorganization of the County's Department of Economic Development into a new non-profit organization that would have more flexibility in many aspects--including retaining current businesses and attracting new ones to the County.
