Hendersonville, NC – Following a unanimous vote from the Board of Directors of the Henderson County Partnership for Economic Development, Brittany Jones Brady was named President of the organization effective October 26, 2017. Brady will succeed Andrew Tate in the position as he joins the North Carolina Railroad Company as Vice President of Real Estate.
