The Greenbrier Valley Economic Development Corporation (GVEDC) has added Krislyn Holden to their staff as Marketing and Administrative Coordinator, effective Oct. 1. Holden holds degrees in public relations and journalism through Marshall University with skills in social media management, graphic design, promotions and events.
“We are pleased to welcome Krislyn to the GVEDC team,” said Ruthana Beezley, executive director of the organization. “I know her skills and her enthusiasm for this new position will serve our communities as the GVEDC moves forward in its mission to move our economy forward.”
Holden’s experience includes working with the Putnam County Chamber of Commerce, the Putnam County Convention and Visitors Bureau, and McGuire Realty Company in Huntington. Most recently, she was the Marketing Coordinator for Harley-Davidson of West Virginia in South Charleston. She grew up in various places in West Virginia and is now a proud Greenbrier Valley resident, living in White Sulphur Springs. When she is not working on marketing, Holden is hiking and exploring West Virginia or at home baking.
“I have never lived in this part of West Virginia,” Holden said. “I am excited to not only learn about the area and people, but also to find ways to ensure economic opportunities for our current locals and future businesses.”
