The York County Economic Alliance (YCEA) announces new leadership for notable development projects of the YCEA and the York County Industrial Development Authority (YCIDA).

Ms. Kim Hogeman, Manager of Strategic Development, will be taking on new leadership within the YCEA and YCIDA. Hogeman has been instrumental in projects such as the Harley-Davidson/Eden Road Logistics Center, Marketview Arts, and the highly impactful revitalization of the Yorktowne Hotel. Many know Hogeman for giving community presentations regarding the Yorktowne Hotel and additional projects, as well as countless tours, donation programs, and fundraising efforts. She has been deeply involved in the Yorktowne Hotel renovation project from the start in 2015. She has established, in conjunction with York College of Pennsylvania, an experience-based curriculum for student engagement in the hotel, as well as collaborated with the Cultural Alliance in a Local Artist Inclusion Program for the project. Additionally, Hogeman spearheaded the creation and launch of the recently formed Land Bank Authority.

Hogeman’s rise to this position is available due to the departure of Mr. Blanda Nace, Director of Strategic Development, as he pursues another opportunity. For 15 years, Nace has been the visible face to notable projects such as PeoplesBank Park, Marketview Arts, Codorus Creek Beautification, and the Yorktowne Hotel.

“With Kim taking this elevated role, the Yorktowne Hotel, Land Bank Authority, and all future development projects, are all positioned for success and growth,” said Kevin Schreiber, President and CEO of the YCEA. “Kim is a forward-thinking, strategic, energetic, and powerful member of the team.”

Hogeman will continue her leadership, and its new advancement, under Silas Chamberlin, Vice President of Economic and Community Development, a position named this past September through the strategic affiliation with Downtown Inc. “The powerhouse team of Kim and Silas is poised for immediate success, and long term thriving of current and future projects,” added Schreiber.
