BETHLEHEM – (SEPT. 16, 2014)– The Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation (LVEDC) has announced the hiring of an award-winning commercial real estate broker with extensive sale and promotional management experience in both the private and public sector.
Lea Glembot, of Bethlehem, is the new vice president of economic development and marketing and is responsible for attracting prospects who are interested in locating or expanding their operations in the Lehigh Valley by assisting them with site selection, the acquisition of incentives, supplying them with demographic and economic data, and connecting them with various public and private resources.
“LVEDC has done a good job managing our inbox with companies who are interested in coming to our region over the last two years,” said Don Cunningham, president and CEO of LVEDC. “But I believe we need to be more proactive, innovative and strategic in our recruitment efforts and this move does that.”
Most recently Glembot served as a commercial real estate broker and liaison with a local hospital for physician and senior executive recruitment with Long and Foster/Webber and Associates in Winchester, Va. Her previous experience includes serving as national sales manager for the Virginia Port Authority in Norfolk, Va. She holds a Master of Business Administration degree with a concentration in international marketing and management from Old Dominion University.
“Lea has an impressive resume in the commercial real estate market and is someone who has the vision and management experience to guide a business development and marketing group,” said Cunningham.
Glembot will report to Cunningham. She is one of the organization’s three vice presidents, along with Matthew Tuerk, vice president of administration, and John Kingsley, vice president of finance.
LVEDC is regional, public-private partnership that has an operating budget of $2.1 million and has 14 full-time employees and two part-time individuals that work on development, marketing, financing and loans to attract, retain and expand economic development in Lehigh and Northampton counties.
