Hughes, Crossfield added to Fredericksburg EDA
Local residents Kevin Hughes and Anita Crossfield have been added to the Fredericksburg Economic Development Authority (EDA) board.
Fredericksburg City Council appointed the two new members at its meetings in late June and Tuesday night. They replace Lee Murray and Chris Waller, who completed their EDA terms.
Hughes, a University of Mary Washington alumnus, is vice president of public affairs for STACK Infrastructure, a data center development company headquartered in Denver. Prior to joining STACK, he spent 10 years working on Internet infrastructure development and tech policy for Facebook. He and his wife, Rachel Berenbaum, co-own downtown retail boutique Phosphene Studio.
Crossfield is the owner/operator of Italian Station on Caroline Street and is active in civic and community affairs. Her “Pay It Forward” movement at Italian Station has received ample media attention.
Also on the EDA board are Will Mackintosh, Suzy Stone, Susan Richey, Beth Black and Mitzi Brown.
The EDA acts as a catalyst for responsible economic growth that improves Fredericksburg’s quality of life.
