Kurt Foreman

Foreman named Top 50 Economic Developer

Kurt Foreman, president, and CEO of Delaware Prosperity Partnership (DPP), has been recognized by Consultant Connect as one of North America’s Top 50 Economic Developers. Of the 50 honorees selected from across North America, only five of the honorees were from state-focused economic development organizations.

Recruited in April of 2018, Foreman was selected to lead the new public-private economic development partnership formalized by the General Assembly in August 2017. 

The three-year-old public-private partnership was created after a review of developing a new economic development strategy for Delaware.

Since its launch, the DPP team has completed 30 projects, a release stated. This has resulted in 3,068 new jobs in Delaware, retention of 1,193 jobs in Delaware, and generation of $733 million in capital investment from companies choosing to locate or grow in Delaware.

Foreman said he believes the forecast for Delaware’s economic development success in 2021 and beyond looks promising.

“Despite the challenges that the Covid-19 pandemic has presented, the Delaware Prosperity Partnership team has continued without interruption,” he said. “We’ve had the good fortune to be very busy and working on numerous promising opportunities that could result in more jobs and investment for our state.”
