Don Fleming has been appointed Co-Chairman of the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation. Fleming had been serving on the SCVEDC’s executive committee as vice-chair.

In the new role Fleming will join Bill Kennedy, who has served as chairman, in leading the organization’s efforts to strengthen the Valley’s economy.

"I am excited Don has agreed to serve as co-chair," said Bill Kennedy, co-chairman.

"He has been a champion of our community for many years and was one of the earliest supporters of our organization. We will all benefit from his positive energy and ‘get-it-done’ attitude," Kennedy said.

The structure of the organization changed slightly from chair and vice-chair roles to co-chair positions, said Josh Mann, manager of business retention and marketing with the SCVEDC.

Both men will also serve staggered two-year terms for continuity reasons, Mann said.

The co-chair structure small change allows the organization to utilize the diverse leadership and complementary skills of its board of directors, the SCVEDC said today.

"We are blessed with a great wealth of talent, experience and leadership on the SCVEDC Board of Directors," said Jonas Peterson, president and CEO with the SCVEDC.

"With the co-chair model, we can pursue multiple projects, leveraging the networks and abilities of our co-chairs," Peterson said.

Co-owner, with his wife Cheri, of Valencia Acura, Fleming has long been active in the local business and charitable community in addition to serving on the board of the SCVEDC. He is also the current president of the Santa Clarita Valley Auto Dealers Association.
