Commissioners Announce New Economic Development Deputy Director

The Worcester County Commissioners announce the promotion of Kathryn Gordon to the position of Worcester County Economic Development (WCED) deputy director. She will step into her new role with WCED on February 27, 2017.

"Kathryn's unique combination of business ownership experience and human resources education will serve WCED, as we prioritize the expansion of workforce development resources in our County," WCED Director Merry Mears said.  

Gordon, who along with her husband, Matt, owned and operated the family-owned Gordon Family Golf Center and Albatross Golf Management Company, joined the Worcester County Government team in 2013, where she worked in County Administration while completing her education. She earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business from Phoenix University and a Master of Science Degree in Human Resources Management from University of Maryland University College. 

“Through owning and running businesses with my husband, Matt, over the years, I understand the hard work and planning that goes into getting the doors open on a new business and the excitement that a new entrepreneur feels when flicking on the switch that lights up the ‘OPEN’ sign,” Gordon said. “I’m thrilled for this opportunity to work with Director Mears and the business community.”

Gordon brings nearly a decade of business management and ownership experience to her new position. In addition to her professional accomplishments, she is active in school and community fundraising events.
