Fleming awarded recertification in economic development designation

K. Scott Fleming, CEO of Marshall Area Economic Development Alliance (MAEDA), has been awarded recertification by the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) effective March 18, 2019.

Fleming first achieved the Certified Economic Developer designation in 1997. CEcD recertification, required every three years, was awarded to Fleming who met demanding requirements for continuing education and service to the profession. Fleming first earned certification by passing a rigorous three-part, two-day examination, testing his knowledge, proficiency and judgment in the key areas of economic development.

With 27 years of economic development experience, Fleming has accomplished much as MAEDA’s CEO. Over the last year, MAEDA has helped grow the City of Marshall economy with over 300 new and projected industrial jobs and committed capital investments of approximately $886,000,000, including the new 1,000- megawatt Marshall Energy Center. On the small business side, MAEDA assisted with the growth of ten new downtown businesses, resulting in over 60 new jobs and capital investment of several million dollars.

In 2019, MAEDA is projecting industrial growth to continue with the potential to exceed $150,000,000. Retail and service opportunities are available for additional capital investment of $1,200,000. MAEDA believes these are conservative projections based on solid prospects in the pipeline.

As highly skilled economic development practitioners, Fleming and over 1,000 other Certified Economic Developers work with public officials, business leaders and community members to create and retain high-quality jobs, establish economic vibrancy and improve quality of life for the people they serve.
