Andrew Davis Promoted to Director of Strategic Redevelopment at NRGRDA


Andrew Davis has been promoted to Director of Strategic Redevelopment at the New River Gorge Regional Development Authority (NRGRDA), effective July 1.

“Andy’s leadership in cultivating stronger relationships throughout the gateway communities to the new national park and preserve, as well as in Appalachian outdoor economic development, has been impressive,” said Jina Belcher, NRGRDA executive director. “Prior to Andy’s work with NRGRDA, the skillset needed to strengthen those relationships didn’t exist within our team.”

Davis joined the NRGRDA staff as Special Projects Coordinator in December 2020. He spearheaded multiple projects and grants supporting community and economic development efforts within Fayette, Nicholas, Raleigh, and Summers counties. He came to NRGRDA from the West Virginia Community Development Hub.
