Director of Economic Development
The Department of Economic Development works to ensure Winder remains a vibrant, charming community.
The Director of Economic Development is responsible for economic development, downtown promotions and revitalization, website management, event coordination, marketing and media relations, as well as the city’s newsletter and other community communication efforts.
Winder is perfectly positioned in the heart of Georgia’s Innovation Crescent, a multi-county region anchored by Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and the Georgia Institute of Technology at one end, and the University of Georgia and Interstate 85 corridor on the other, all connected by the Innovation Corridor, Georgia Highway 316. One of the nation’s most economically vibrant and diverse locations, the region is home to 40% of Georgia’s population of 10.4 million, 16 Fortune 500 company headquarters, and 26 Fortune 1000 company headquarters.
