GSMP launches search for new president

Staff Reports

The Greater San Marcos Partnership (GSMP), the regional economic development organization for Hays and Caldwell counties, has launched a nationwide search for a new president.

Adriana Cruz, who had held that role for several years, is soon to assume her new job as executive director of economic development and tourism in the office of Governor Greg Abbott.

According to a news release, the GSMP plans to conclude its search by the end of February 2020.

“The region has experienced tremendous economic growth during my six and a half years as president. The organization has been instrumental in assisting Amazon, Best Buy E-Commerce Sales Center, and SmileDirectClub locate to the region, just to name a few,” Cruz said. “The GSMP Board is committed to securing the ideal candidate with the skills, experience and proven track record that will keep the region on its trajectory of smart growth.”

Two committees were created by the GSMP board to assist in the process of selecting a new president. Committee members represent the city of San Marcos, Hays County, Caldwell County and Texas State University. The GSMP board is ultimately responsible for selecting the most qualified candidate to lead the GSMP.
