Tucker Strategies to provide interim services for CEDC




Hudson, NY - The Columbia Economic Development Corporation (CEDC) Board of Directors will retain Tucker Strategies, Inc., an Albany-based real estate, energy, economic and business development consulting firm, to provide part time, interim Executive Director services beginning August 1, 2015

CEDC Board of Directors recently completed an evaluation of the mission, operation and structure of the organization and made the determination to move forward with a reorganization plan.  A cornerstone of this plan is to move to a full time Executive Director. 

F. Michael Tucker, President of Tucker Strategies, will assist CEDC by providing the day to day organizational leadership and support needed, as well as assist CEDC as it begins a search for a new full time Executive Director.

“Mike Tucker is perfectly poised to provide leadership and continuity to CEDC,” stated CEDC Board Secretary Sarah Sterling.  “His background and tireless efforts on behalf of economic development makes him the ideal leader to carry on CEDC’s critical work.  We are fortunate to be working with him during this important transition phase.” 

Tucker recently stepped down from his position as President and CEO at the Center for Economic Growth (CEG) after eight successful years to launch Tucker Strategies, Inc. With an office in downtown Albany, the consulting firm helps businesses and organizations develop innovative growth strategies based on their depth of knowledge, focus on innovation, and commitment to impact. 

“In addition to his business and economic development skills, Mike Tucker has long been a catalyst in making the connections necessary for economic development to thrive,” stated CEDC Board Member Tony Jones.  “Mike’s ability to serve as an organizational spokesperson and his understanding of the importance of collaborating with constituents who care about economic development will enable him to ‘hit the ground running’.”

Michael Tucker serves on the Capital Region Economic Development Council and is actively involved in the Capital Region Creative Economy initiative – both critically important to the economic development activities in Columbia County. 


Columbia Economic Development Corporation (CEDC), the leading economic development organization in Columbia County, is committed to strengthening the county’s tax base through economic development and job creation while maintaining the quality of life so desired by the people who live and work here.  For more information about CEDC’s programs and services, visit our website at www.columbiaedc.com.
