The Mississippi Development Authority Executive Director Glenn McCullough, Jr., announced that Pamela Weaver will serve as chief marketing officer for the state’s lead economic development agency. 

“Pamela is a dynamic leader, and she will be a tremendous asset to our team,” said McCullough. “Successful economic development occurs through the building of relationships both at home and worldwide.
