Daryl Phillips, CEcD
I work as an economic developer. I currently serve as Director of Economic Development for the Cheatham County Joint Economic & Community Development Board. However, my opinions on this blog are my own, as is the blog itself.
I am a member of International Economic Development Council, Southern Economic Development Council, International Association of Business Communicators, Tennessee Economic Development Council and International Council of Shopping Centers.
I have held the designation of Certified Economic Developer (CEcD) from International Economic Development Council (IEDC) since 2008, the Economic Development Finance Professional (EDFP) certification from National Development Council since 2014 and I have earned a Master of Business Administration from Tennessee Technological University.
