Georgetown hires new director of economic development
After a nationwide recruitment, City Manager David Morgan has appointed Cameron Goodman as Economic Development Director for the City of Georgetown. His first day will be Oct. 10.
“This is a critical time for Georgetown to capitalize on economic development opportunities that will continue to lift quality of life and prosperity for our community,” Morgan said. “Cameron is the right professional to guide our efforts and the right leader to guide our team. I couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to Georgetown.”
Goodman comes to Georgetown with experience running economic development departments in two fast-growing communities in Texas. Most recently, he served as economic development director in Leander, which has been listed alongside Georgetown as one of the five fastest growing cities in the country during his time there. Previously, he served as economic development director in Richmond, a suburb of Houston, and served in economic development roles for the cities of League City and Waco.
Goodman is a Certified Economic Developer. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science and History from Sam Houston State University, and his Master of Public Service and Administration degree from the Texas A&M University Bush School of Government and Public Service.
“Georgetown is a fantastic community full of history and opportunity,” Goodman said. “I am excited to join the City of Georgetown team and look forward to building on the hard work that has already been accomplished by city leadership and staff.”
