Daniel Ryley named new Executive Director of AEDA

Posted

The Arvada Economic Development Association (AEDA) has appointed Daniel Ryley as the new Executive Director.

“On behalf of the AEDA Board, we are excited for him to take on this new opportunity and are confident that he is the right leader for this organization,” said Jodi Thomas, AEDA Board President. “Daniel possesses more than 14 years of economic and workforce development experience. His skills will complement the organization's strengths as we continue to promote Arvada as a pro business community,"

Ryley has been AEDA's Deputy Director for the past four years and has had many successes in that role, including managing AEDA's Business Retention program and Business Retention Committee, overseeing AEDA grant and loan programs, and consulting with businesses, commercial brokers, developers and the Arvada community. Prior to joining AEDA, Ryley served as the Director of Business Retention for Adams County Economic Development. In this role, he led the organization's Business Retention Taskforce and leveraged assets and resources from the public and private sector to support the growth and expansion of existing critical industries within Adams County.

Ryley is a Colorado native and holds a bachelor's degree in Organizational Leadership from Colorado State University.

As the Executive Director of the AEDA team, Ryley will be responsible for supporting the AEDA Board of Directors, guiding the staff on strategy, prioritizing projects and overall leadership of the organization.

"Arvada has a legacy of excellence in economic development," Ryley said. “It is an honor to be chosen to lead this organization, and I look forward to continuing the great work that has made Arvada a community where businesses choose to grow and invest.”

In the next few months, AEDA staff will be engaging in new and expanded roles. Ryan Stachelski, former AEDA director, has transitioned into a new growth and development position within the city of Arvada.
