get to know the CED board

CED was built by Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs more than 35 years ago and is still led by them today.  

We are proud to be represented by some of the area’s most talented and successful leaders committed to ensuring the success of the entrepreneurial ecosystem in this area. The formation of the board is intentional to ensure a balanced representation from each component of the ecosystem.  We are a quarter Entrepreneur, a quarter Professional Service, a quarter Community Resource and a quarter Investor.
