Greg Wright, longtime director of the Coweta County Development Authority, is stepping down to take a position with Coweta-Fayette EMC. We’ll let him say it in his own words. And we wish him the best:

“After 8 years at the Coweta County Development Authority, I have accepted a position with Coweta-Fayette EMC as Senior Director of Community and Economic Development. My last day at the Development Authority will be September 15th.

This was not an easy decision for me to make. However, I know that I am going to work for a great company and will still be involved in economic development. That is very important to me.

“To my economic development friends – I hope you will take a long, hard look at applying for the job. This really is a special community with government, business and community leaders who understand and appreciate economic development and work together”
