05-13-15 Garrett HartCHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — Chesterfield County will name H. Garrett Hart III its new economic development director today at a Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce luncheon held at the Sheraton Richmond to honor Will Davis, who is retiring from the post. Hart, a nine-year member of the county’s economic development team and currently its assistant director for new business development, will assume the lead role July 1.

Hart said he plans to continue Davis’ strong legacy. Under Davis’ leadership, the Economic Development Department recorded $3.2 billion in new capital investments and 8,200 new jobs. Hart has played a significant role in that growth.

“During Garrett’s tenure with Chesterfield, the county experienced the most successful era for growth of business, jobs and investment,” County Administrator Jay Stegmaier said. “When you look at major projects that came to the county over that period you will find Garrett’s fingerprints on all of them.”

Hart’s selection followed an international search that resulted in 23 total applicants from seven states and three countries, including Canada, Samoa and the U.S. A five-member panel comprised of public- and private-sector representatives interviewed seven applicants.

“I want to thank Will Davis, Jay Stegmaier, other county leaders, the selection committee and the Board of Supervisors for their work during the selection process and for having confidence in me,” Hart said. “I look forward to working with my fellow county colleagues and the Chesterfield business and development communities to continue to make Chesterfield one of the best places for business in the country.”
