CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — James Browder has been selected as the new executive director at Tamarack.
The West Virginia Parkways Authority unanimously approved Browder’s appointment Thursday. He was chosen from among more than 100 applicants.
Media outlets report Browder most recently served as the president of the Lexington, Kentucky, Convention and Visitors Bureau.
He replaces Cheryl Hartley, who retired in June after 14 years with the Beckley retail center that showcases handmade crafts, arts and specialty foods.
Parkways Authority chair Jason Pizatella says Browder is expected to start work on Oct. 1.
