FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Denver Office of Economic Development Names New Chief Business Development Officer

New executive management position to lead business development, global business and workforce development teams

 

DENVER, CO ­— Wednesday, May 16, 2018 — The Denver Office of Economic Development (OED) has announced the hiring of Deborah Cameron for the new Chief Business Development Officer position. Cameron will lead the OED’s business attraction and retention efforts, directing efforts across the business development, global business, and workforce development teams. She will oversee a group of approximately 40 staff focused on growing and sustaining Denver businesses.

 

“Deborah has played a key role in recruiting leading national and international firms here in the Denver region and in other states,” said OED Executive Director Eric Hiraga. “Her successes in guiding both economic and workforce development initiatives make her an ideal person to lead our business team. We look forward to leveraging her creativity and commitment to forge greater business and employment opportunities throughout Denver.”

 

This role supports a recent OED organizational realignment, designed to improve and maximize the city’s investments in business retention, expansion and workforce development. With staff recruitment identified as one of the top challenges facing employers, OED has more closely aligned its business and workforce development functions. In addition, the role will oversee a global business team, focused on increased trade and partnership opportunities for Denver businesses.

 

“Denver is clearly the envy of economic developers across the country, and I’m excited to lend my talents here, said Cameron. “Throughout my career, I have developed an in-depth understanding of how to guide a community to economic success and a genuine appreciation for relationships built on trust, respect, radical collaboration and the results it can produce.”

 

Deborah Cameron Background
Cameron is an economic development professional with nearly 20 years of experience working at the state, regional, utility and local level. Prior to joining OED, she built and marketed the aerospace cluster in South Carolina for the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness, led business attraction efforts for the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, retained and attracted businesses for the Tennessee Valley Authority, and increased economic development in rural distressed areas of east Tennessee for the Douglas Cherokee Economic Authority. Cameron began her economic development career with the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development.

 

Deborah holds an MBA from Johns Hopkins University and an undergraduate degree in political science from the University of Maryland Baltimore County. She and her husband live in Denver with their rambunctious labs, enjoy hiking and backpacking and are building an airplane.

 

 

The Denver Office of Economic Development (OED) is dedicated to advancing economic prosperity for the City of Denver, its businesses, neighborhoods and residents. Working with a wide variety of community partners, OED operates to create a local environment that stimulates balanced growth through job creation, business assistance, housing options, neighborhood redevelopment and the development of a skilled workforce.
