The City of Delaware welcomes Cody Hatten as its new Economic Development Coordinator.
Hatten previously served in various capacities with the Lawrence Economic Development Corporation in Lawrence County, Ohio. His positions included Economic Development Specialist and Director of the Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Hatten’s experience in economic development began in 2016, when he served as associate director in the development office in Wayne County, West Virginia. His experience includes property marketing, business retention and expansion, social media management and grant writing.
“Cody brings good experience to this role,” said Sean Hughes, Economic Development Director for the City of Delaware. “His background in economic development and digital marketing will serve as a great addition to our team and our ongoing efforts.”
Courtney Hendershot, who previously served as Economic Development Coordinator, has been promoted to Economic Development Project Manager for the City of Delaware.
“She did a fantastic job in the coordinator role, and I look forward to the projects she will accomplish in this new capacity,” Hughes said.
Hatten graduated from Marshall University with his MBA. He is currently a Delaware resident and enjoys visiting the many unique restaurants and shops that the City of Delaware has to offer.
