Matt Hussmann is taking over the top spot at the neighborhood booster group. Hussman’s resume includes gigs with the Downtown Nanaimo Partnership Society, in British Columbia, Canada, and more recently with the Downtown DC Business Improvement District.
“I’m delighted and excited to begin work in Clarendon,” Hussman said in a statement. “This is a terrific neighborhood with a lot of attractions. It’s growing and changing, but I think it still retains its character as an urban village. The Clarendon Alliance has a long and successful tradition, and I’m proud to have the opportunity to work to make a great organization, and a great commercial district even better.”
Hussman’s first day, June 27, will coincide with the Alliance’s move to a new office on the ground floor of the Clarendon Center South building at 11th Street N.
Hussman will replace departing executive director Susan Anderson, who left for the Arlington County Treasurer’s Office.
The Clarendon Alliance was formed in 1985 to help guide the revitalization of the Clarendon area. It is partially funded by Arlington County. Additional funding comes from memberships and events.
