The Clarendon Alliance has tapped a new executive director. Elizabeth Crocker will succeed Matt Hussman, who departed late last year.
“As a native Arlingtonian, I am excited to have this opportunity to work for a neighborhood that I love,” Crocker said in a statement from the organization. “I look forward to promoting Clarendon businesses, strengthening relationships throughout Arlington, collaborating with old and new partners, and creating innovative events for the community.”
Prior to joining the Clarendon Alliance, Crocker served as vice president of the National Grocers Association, senior director of development and outreach for SHAPE America and executive director of the Foundation for Rural Service.
“Elizabeth brings a wealth of experience in special events, fund-raising, membership and economic development,” said Scott Pedowitz, president of the Clarendon Alliance board of directors. “She joins us during an exciting time of transition for our organization, and we are looking forward to working with a leader of her caliber.”
