Carroll Tomorrow announces new VP of economic development

CARROLLTON, Ga. -- Carroll Tomorrow is pleased to announce that Brian Dill has been selected as vice president of economic development and global commerce.

"We have a strong team representing Carroll Tomorrow, the Chamber and the Burson Center. I believe Brian will be a valuable addition to our staff," said Daniel Jackson, Carroll Tomorrow president and CEO. "We have a full agenda, but we also have many volunteers, partners and stakeholders who will help us make it happen."

A native of Irwin County, Dill graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in political science in 1994. He served on Senator Saxby Chambliss' first campaign for Congress and went on to work as a federal and state lobbyist for the Georgia Farm Bureau.

Dill has spent approximately 12 years in corporate and industrial business development and recruitment. His previous experience is as an economic development executive holding VP positions in state and local business recruitment with chambers of commerce and statewide utilities in Atlanta, Newnan, Rome and Cumming.

Carmen, Dill's wife, teachers Family and Consumer Science and Consumer Economics at Forsyth Central High School. Their son, Mason, is in third grade at Coal Mountain Elementary School.

The Dills will relocate to Carrollton from Cumming, where they are members of Cumming First United Methodist Church.

"Carroll Tomorrow has been fortunate to have talented staff since it was created in 2001," said Jackson. "With the recent kick-off of the new Carroll Tomorrow strategic plan named Advantage Carroll, the timing was perfect to find an individual with the skill set and experience to help us focus on business recruitment, site development and new job creation."

"Brian is exactly the kind of person we need right now to add to our team to help us carry out the Advantage Carroll plan," said Loy Howard, co-founder and chairman of the Carroll Tomorrow board of directors. "Through the recent strategic planning process, community leaders have created an aggressive plan with high expectations, so we needed someone with the energy, drive and experience to help us achieve our goals."
