Letter from the Director

The search is over, and I am excited to announce that an addition to our team, Krista Hoffman, will fill the position of Associate Executive Director.  Krista served 20 years as President and Manager of her family’s manufacturing business before entering the field of economic development.  Krista lives in Berkeley County with her husband, David and son, Jacob.  With her knowledge, she will be a great asset to our BCDA team and Berkeley County, WV.

The BCDA recently increased its footprint.  The BCDA underwent renovations to expand our office located at 300 Foxcroft Avenue, Suite 201, Martinsburg, WV.  The additional space will enable us to better serve the community.  The BCDA owns the 300 and 400 Foxcroft Buildings and are leased at 100%.  Currently, multiple non-profits and other organizations utilize our conference room space at no cost.  In the future, look for out for a Chamber Mixer at our office! 

Why is a marketing strategy important?  A marketing strategy is your plan of action and a blueprint to the marketing activity you will do to grow your business.  The BCDA has recently started Business Spotlights and Podcasts.  The Business Spotlight is free to any business in Berkeley County, WV.  It is designed to create awareness for that business.  The images and videos taken are available to the business free of charge.  Most recently, Black Draft, Quad, Chem-Pak, and Orsini’s all participated.  Please reach out to Leslie Gantt if your business is interested. 

A podcast is also a great way to build a connection with our audience and keep them growing.  In our podcast, we like to share information about businesses, programs and many other resources available in Berkeley County, WV.  It is one of the best ways to get information out in this fast-paced world we all live in.  Blue Ridge CTC and Main Street Martinsburg are the most recent completed and Commercial Metals podcast will be posted soon.  Check them out at  BCDA Podcast.  Our goal is to connect you with the many opportunities that our county has to offer.

The Berkeley County Development Authority remains dedicated to the mission of promoting sustainable industrial and economic development through the cooperative sharing of resources with the community.
