Jamal Lewis has been named project manager of business development for the Henry County Development Authority.
Lewis, who currently serves as a project manager with the Georgia Department of Economic Development, helped the state corral local pitches for Amazon’s national second headquarters hunt last year.
“My experiences at the Georgia Department of Economic Development provide me with the insight and tools that can make a difference on the local level,” Lewis said. “The Henry County Development Authority has a very strong team. I look forward to being a part of the solution for companies looking to create additional tax base and jobs in the area.”
Lewis received his undergraduate degree in sports management and marketing in 2008 and a master’s of public administration in 2017 from Kennesaw State University. He has been a marketing manager at the Coles College of Business at Kennesaw and owner of Billionaire Nation Marketing in Atlanta.
“Henry County has a tremendous amount of growth opportunities in the areas of corporate solutions and manufacturing,” said Josh Fenn, executive director of the authority.
“Jamal’s role in working with new projects looking at the area and developing relationships with statewide economic development organizations, site consultants and prospects will be an integral part of this newly created position for the authority,” he said.
