(June 4, 2019) – The Cumberland Area Economic Development Corporation (CAEDC) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the hire of Jamie Keener as CAEDC’s new Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Keener will begin at CAEDC on June 10, 2019.

Keener joins CAEDC from Herbert, Rowland & Grubic, Inc where he has worked for over 14 years, most recently as the Director of Business Development/Certified Land Use Planner.

“I am excited to join a tremendous staff who will continue to promote business retention, attraction and growth; tourism promotion; and workforce development in Cumberland County,” said Keener. “As a native of Shippensburg and a current Hampden Township, Cumberland County resident, I look forward to working with our communities, the CAEDC Board, the County Commissioners, and many regional stakeholders to encourage and promote economic development while preserving our heritage and the character of our region.”

Keener brings an exceptional combination of leadership and business development skills along with community involvement and planning.

“In his 30-years of experience, Keener brings a strong knowledge base in real estate, planning as an AICP-certified land use planner, business development, marketing, management and leadership development,” said Crystal Quintin, CAEDC Board Chair. “He has served as a community leader on various community boards, most recently on the Hampden Township Zoning Hearing Board, and as Chairman of the West Shore Chamber of Commerce Board, the Monroe County Workforce Investment Board, and the United Way. His ability to forge and maintain meaningful relationships in every community where he has resided exemplifies this critical skill set.”

Cumberland County continues to be the fastest growing county in Pennsylvania and CAEDC’s role in promoting and advancing the area’s economic and tourism assets will continue to be paramount as the county grows in a responsible way.

As of June 10, Keener can be reached at (717) 240-7181 (office) or by email at [email protected].
