Armstrong Moving from EID to E-REP


Joshua Armstrong will be a senior vice president for the regional development agency

The head of the Downtown Evansville Economic Improvement District is making a move to regional development. WNIN’s John Gibson has the story:

Joshua Armstrong has been appointed a Senior Vice President for the Evansville Regional Economic Partnership, or E-REP.

Armstrong begins the new role October 2nd.

He led the 2018 formation of the Economic Improvement District, where officials say he’s guided growth by providing benefits to more than 450 properties in Downtown Evansville.

During his time with the EID, Armstrong also served the region in Regional Cities and READI grant programs, and most recently co-leading the Ohio River Vision & Strategic Plan.

It won’t be much of a physical move for Armstrong, because the EID and E-REP share office space at Innovation Pointe on Main St.

E-REP CEO Tara Barney says it’s a “natural fit” for Armstrong to continue strategic impact and economic development work on behalf of the region.
