About Union County Development Board

Today, we are an energized, progressive team of leaders with diverse backgrounds and expertise in practical areas that positively impact economic development and growth. These areas include: public utilities, private utilities, industry, secondary education, post- secondary education, healthcare, finance and other professional occupations that impact industry recruitment and retention. While new industry recruitment is a primary goal, overall, the UCDB is the driving force for responsible growth across the county in all areas of economic development. We boast strong relationships—locally, regionally, and at the state level—that give us a strong competitive advantage as we position our varied strengths and attributes moving forward, both internally and externally.
