Head of Clarendon Alliance Set to Step Down Next Month

The head of the Clarendon Alliance says he plans to step down at the end of next month.

Executive Director Matt Hussmann announced yesterday (Thursday) that he’ll be resigning his post once the organization holds its annual “Clarendon Day” on Sept. 22.

Hussmann has headed up the group, which advocates on behalf of local businesses and manages a variety of Clarendon events, since 2011.

“I am proud of the work we have done and the accomplishments we have made,” Hussmann wrote in a statement.  “I am looking forward to another successful Clarendon Day and will work with the organization to ensure a smooth transition for the new executive director.”

Scott Pedowitz, the newly elected president of the Alliance’s Board of Directors, commended Hussmann for his “seven years of commitment to Clarendon.”

According to his bio on the group’s website, Hussmann worked at a “business improvement association” in Canada before joining the Alliance, as well as at the Downtown DC Business Improvement District.

Pedowitz added that the Alliance has already started a search for Hussmann’s successor, and wrote in a statement that the group is “now looking ahead to an opportunity for the Clarendon Alliance to continue to refine our mission and goals to continue to serve the Clarendon neighborhood best.”
