Message from the Executive Director

Kenneth J. Flood, Executive Director






Season’s Greetings!

As festive decorations and colored lights adorn our streets, shop windows and houses, we are met with a sense of exhilaration for the holiday season and the prospect of closing the chapter that was 2014.

At CEDC, it is with gratitude and pride that we reflect on the labor of the past year.  Twelve months of dedication has brought us closer to realizing  our vision of greater economic prosperity for the people who live and work here.

As the holiday season is upon us, we find ourselves reflecting on the past year and on those who have helped us shape community and economic development throughout the county.

I humbly acknowledge that our achievements, coupled with the enthusiastic execution of our day-to-day operations, were made possible through the supportive leadership of our Board of Directors.  I thank the Board for the direction and guidance they have provided to the organization over the course of 2014.

In addition, I extend heartfelt appreciation to CEDC’s most precious resource – our employees.  Thank you for the dedication, positive spirit and remarkable teamwork you have displayed this year.  Thanks to you, we were able to assist countless entrepreneurs and small business owners throughout the county and market this beautiful corner of the Hudson Valley as the desirable investment destination that it is.

Furthermore, thank you to the many entrepreneurs, small business owners, community leaders, and elected officials for choosing CEDC as your business partner.  We value our relationship with you and look forward to working with you in the year to come.

I wish you all a happy holiday season and a New Year filled with peace and prosperity.
