The Aberdeen Downtown Association has hired Alexa Sheldon as its new Executive Director.

Originally from Gettysburg, Alexa recently moved to Aberdeen and began her new position on December 5 last year.

“Growing up, I spent many weekends here. I have always been an advocate and believer in the growth and potential of downtown Aberdeen. I have felt great pride as I watched the efforts of local businesses and entrepreneurship blossom and reshape the heart of this community, even from afar as I lived and worked in Minneapolis,” Alexa said.

Her background in business development, marketing and public relations will be assets to this role. The Board of Directors looks forward to working with Alexa and continuing the upward momentum of revitalizing downtown Aberdeen. //—Annie Scott
