“Tenille is a great fit for our new role,” EDG President and CEO Keith Gillenwater said. “With her background and education, coupled with her connections in the community, she will be a real asset to (EDG) and our many partners.

“I look forward to working with her to advance all of the projects and programs that (EDG) leads and to help us make an even bigger impact on our community.”
