Goshen, NY Hudson Valley Economic Development Corp. (HVEDC) has appointed Doug Kenyon, director of business development at PC Construction Co., to its advisory board.
A licensed professional engineer as well as a licensed real estate salesperson, Kenyon has had his current position at PC Construction since July 2018, but he has many years of experience in the construction industry. His experience and expertise in building and development will provide insight as part of HVEDC’s efforts to support growth and expansion in businesses throughout the region.
“I’m pleased to be joining the HVEDC Advisory Board,” said Kenyon. “This is an outstanding team of entrepreneurs and business advocates and I’m hopeful that my insight into the world of development will be valuable both to this board and to the numerous businesses it supports throughout the Hudson Valley.”
Before he took his position with PC Construction last year, Kenyon had already established himself in the world of development over the course of a decades-long career. His work included time as a vice president with Claris Construction, and as a principal with Kenco Development LLC, working as a consulting engineer for structural design and analysis, feasibility studies, design coordination, construction management and more.
“We are excited to have Doug join our advisory board,” said Mike Oates, president and CEO of HVEDC. “His knowledge and vast breadth of experience in construction and development will be greatly beneficial to our group, particularly his recent work with PC Construction, which has a long history of development right here in the Hudson Valley and in forming great partnerships with the local business community.”
The boards of directors of HVEDC and the Westchester County Association (WCA) announced on January 29 the intent to pursue a merger of the two organizations, creating a leading economic development and business advocacy organization in New York State. The new organization unites a shared strategic mission and vision of HVEDC and the WCA. It will build on their economic development strategies, which are designed to diversify and strengthen the Hudson Valley economy.
