“Greater Richmond Partnership’s board announced Monday that Jennifer Wakefield, the regional economic development organization’s interim leader, has been chosen as its permanent president and CEO, effective immediately.

Wakefield, who previously was chief operating officer and served twice as the partnership’s interim president, joined GRP in 2017 as its senior vice president of marketing. She replaces Lara Fritts, who resigned in October after only a little more than a year as the public-private partnership’s leader. Wakefield was vice president of marketing and communications for the Orlando Economic Development Commission for 11 years, before coming to Richmond, and last year, she was named one of the top 50 economic developers in the country by Consultant Connect.”
