Madison leaving post at Partnership
After five years of service in the greater San Marcos community, Amy Madison, president/CEO, of the Greater San Marcos Partnership Board, has resigned to pursue another business opportunity, according to Will Conley, chairman of that board and Hays County commissioner.
“Amy was highly successful in developing and launching the Partnership. Her efforts brought together two counties and seven cities to implement a regional economic development strategy,” Conley said. “Her positive energy and work ethic will be missed.”
During the past two years, Madison assisted with 310 new business recruitment jobs and 643 expansion jobs for a total of 953 new jobs in the San Marcos region. The organization received recognition as the top New Economic Development Program in the State of Texas from the Association of Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives, and the Economic Development Excellence Award from the Texas Economic Development Council.
“I am proud of the many accomplishments during my tenure that have positioned the greater San Marcos region as an enviable business environment," Madison said. The work has been demanding, but professionally rewarding. With the five-year strategic plan either accomplished or near completion in 2.5 years, it is a good time to transition,."
With her departure, the Greater San Marcos Partnership will begin a nationwide search to find a new President/CEO. Conley will chair the search committee and Pike Powers will serve as Senior Advisor, offering his years of experience and understanding of both the economic development sector and the region. In addition, Dr. Robert Gratz, long-serving member of Texas State University President Denise Trauth’s Cabinet, will provide advice and assistance to the search committee.
Details of the search committee will be finalized and approved by the GSMP Board of Directors and will be announced in the coming weeks.
