Pflugerville Community Development Corporation Hires New Assistant Executive DirectorAmy Madison brings a wealth of Central Texas economic development experience to the PCDC.
PFLUGERVILLE, Texas—The Pflugerville Community Development Corporation (PCDC) today announced that Amy Madison joined the organization as assistant executive director. Madison comes to the PCDC with 12 years experience working in the economic development industry in Central Texas, having held positions such as president of the Greater San Marcos Partnership, owner of a consulting firm that provides economic development services, and executive director for the City of Schertz.
“Amy Madison’s credentials, experience and contacts in the industry combined with her professional drive make her a great fit for our team,” PCDC Executive Director Floyd Akers said.
Akers noted that Madison was highly successful developing regional business conferences and events for the San Marcos conference center with limited resources.
“This skillset and enthusiasm will parlay into supporting a future conference center for these types of events and activities in Pflugerville,” he said.
The success and growth of 130 Commerce Center, a mixed-use development located at the southwest corner of SH 130 and Pecan Street, has encouraged the PCDC to create and plan for phases II, III and IV. 130 Commerce Center will eventually spread to all four corners of the SH 130 and Pecan Street intersection.
“Madison will be instrumental in helping the PCDC recruit businesses, create jobs and bring capital investment to Pflugerville,” Akers said.
Madison is a member of the Texas Economic Development Council (TEDC) and served on the TEDC Board of Directors from 2011 to 2012. She is a member of the International Economic Development Council and the Southern Economic Development Council. Madison has also served as vice president for the A-T Children’s Project Board of Directors since 1999.
Madison is a Certified Economic Developer (CEcD), certified Economic Development Finance Professional (EDFP), and a Certified Public Manager (CPM).
Madison, whose first day at the PCDC was Jan. 22, fills the role previously held by Mary Poché at the PCDC. In December, Poché resigned from the PCDC to accept a role as executive director of the Decatur Economic Development Corporation in North Texas.
