Landmark Builders has named David Ramsey as the company’s new Director of Business Development, tapping an experienced and proven economic development professional to lead its client development in the Greensboro-High Point-Winston-Salem market.
Ramsey has had an 18-year career in economic development, serving in leadership positions at the Gainesville (FL) Area Chamber of Commerce, the Mississippi Development Authority, and, most recently, the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce, where he served as Executive Vice President of Economic Development.
“We’re excited that David is joining the team here at Landmark Builders. In looking for a Business Developer, it was important to us to find someone who espouses the culture and values of Landmark and this region we serve; we believe he’s a great fit. We look forward to introducing David to our customers in the near future. I want to thank Brent Christensen and the Greensboro Chamber for their engagement during this important transition,” said Randy Elliott, Vice President at Landmark Builders.
“The Landmark team is getting the best economic developer I know,” said Brent Christensen, president & CEO of the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce. “I’m proud of the work he has led at the Greensboro Chamber, and I am sure he is as well. David successfully worked with our ED team in closing major projects such as Publix Super Markets, Qorvo, Ecolab, HAECO Americas, Sunlight Batteries USA, The Fresh Market, and most recently during the pandemic, Prepac Manufacturing. We look forward to continuing to work with him in his new role.”
“The VP role in economic development is one of the best jobs in America, so this was not an easy decision for me. When a call comes from a highly respected company and team in Landmark Builders, you have to answer; I’m thankful to have an opportunity to serve both Landmark and our community in this new role. I want to thank my boss and mentor, Brent Christensen, our board and the talented ED and Chamber team for affording me five wonderful years as VP of economic development. It’s performance that counts, and this Chamber team is relentless in making Greensboro and the Triad the best place to live and do business,” said Ramsey.
David will begin work with Landmark in early September. He and his wife Emily and two boys, Reid (4) and William (2), will continue to live in Greensboro.
