BDC taps Six as director, announces plans for management team growth
WEIRTON — The Business Development Corp. of the Northern Panhandle, today, announced Marvin Six will be continuing with the economic development agency in the role of executive director, along with plans to expand its management team.
“The BDC has undergone incredible growth and we have a full pipeline of active development projects to bring to completion in the next 18 to 24 months,” Bill D’Alesio, chairman of the BDC board, said. “After conducting a national search to replace the former executive director, we interviewed some terrific candidates, both locally and regionally, but it became clear that the BDC has outgrown the current management structure.
In short, the BDC has become too large and critical to regional development to rely on finding the ‘perfect candidate’ to lead us into the next decade. We have reached a point in growth that we need to expand the management team to make sure we bring the current projects to completion while ensuring there is a future team for development.”
