David Cuda, Colliers International’s director of corporate solutions, was recently elected president of the South Carolina Economic Developers’ Association (SCEDA) at the organization’s annual conference in Myrtle Beach.
Cuda has recently finished his term as vice president of SCEDA.
“I am delighted that David’s colleagues at SCEDA have elected him to their highest leadership position,” Colliers South Carolina President John Folsom said. “Economic development is about cooperation and bringing stakeholders together to accelerate everyone’s success. When it comes to South Carolina, you are not going to find many people more dedicated to our state, our businesses and our citizens than David Cuda.”
Cuda has wide real estate experience in finance, construction, development and consulting across South Carolina. In 2000, Cuda was one of the founders of the Upstate Alliance. He has represented major national and international companies in various real estate and development services.
One of Cuda’s recent projects with Colliers International was the promotion of the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research.
SCEDA, a professional membership association devoted to increasing the state's economy, is celebrating its 50th anniversary. It has over 600 members from all 46 counties in the state and brings together local and regional economic developers, local and state officials, construction and engineering firms, utility companies, attorneys, consultants, financial institutions and leaders in higher education.
