New EDC Director Named In Caldwell County

Caldwell County Manager Donald Duncan recently named Ashley Bolick as director of the county’s reorganized Economic Development Commission.

Duncan said the county is pleased to have Bolick join the team as they bring the EDC back in house. He added that she is a natural leader who will work diligently to recruit new industries and bring more jobs to our area.

In her new role, Bolick will help the EDC transition from a contracted service to a county-operated department. Bolick said she is excited to bring her passion for service and to continue to build upon the successes of the Commissioners, EDC Board, and staff.

A lifelong resident of Caldwell County, Bolick brings nearly 20 years of Human Resources and Management experience to her new role. For the last 7½ years, she has served the Western Piedmont Council on Governments (WPCOG) as Director of Administration and Human Resources.

In her role with the WPCOG Bolick’s duties have included managing a $2.8 million annual budget, pay plan studies, and executive searches for local governments. Bolick will take her oath of office on Monday, December 5, at 5:45 p.m. in the City/County Chambers. A reception welcoming Bolick will begin at 5:15 p.m.
