Fredericksburg names new assistant economic development director

Tony Williams

Tony Williams has been named as Fredericksburg’s next assistant director for economic development.

Williams, currently director of tourism and economic development for Greene County, will start Aug. 5.

Richard Tremblay, who currently holds the Fredericksburg job, is retiring and moving to Charlottesville with his wife. Tremblay’s last day is Aug. 30, allowing for a few weeks of transition between the two men.

Before his five-year tenure in Greene County, Williams for eight years assisted with project development with the Virginia Economic Development Partnership. He has also worked with the Virginia Department of Aviation and the Virginia Tourism Corp. He attended Westminster Choir College and ECPI University.
