PWSEDD Hires New Executive Director
In April 2020, the Prince William Sound Economic Development District (PWSEDD) hired Kristin Carpenter, a long-time Cordova resident, as its next Executive Director. “We’re so pleased to have the PWSEDD office back in a community in the Sound,” said Cordova Mayor Clay Koplin.
Carpenter comes to the PWSEDD with two decades of nonprofit management, and is excited to be putting her partnership building experience to work for the communities of the Sound: “there are lots of active projects on the horizon for the Sound” she explains. “One is supporting the growth of kelp farming in Prince William Sound, the town of Whittier is eager to develop camping and kayaking facilities at the head of the bay, and the Valdez Museum is working on a new building for its collections. I’m looking forward to contributing to the great energy that is making big things happen for the Sound.”
