NCRC Names Freeman President and CEO
In January, the National Capital Revitalization Corporation (NCRC) Board named Anthony Freeman president and CEO of NCRC and the RLA Revitalization Corporation.
Mr. Freeman had served as the interim president since the resignation of former head Ted Carter in August 2004.
“Anthony Freeman has a clear agenda for leading NCRC and for development in the neighborhoods of the city. We look forward to working closely with him on fulfilling NCRC’s economic development initiatives,” says Washington, DC Marketing Center President and CEO Michael Stevens.
Mr. Freeman has stated that expanding NCRC’s revitalization efforts into East Washington, Wards Seven and Eight as a priority, which includes moving to a joint development model so that NCRC retains a stake in the communities it is helping to redevelop.
Mr. Freeman joined NCRC in 2003 as senior vice president for business development and strategy. While in the position of interim president, Mr. Freeman made NCRC’s first two investments in redevelopment projects– The Heights of Columbia, a mixed-use development and the Walter Washington Center. As president and CEO, he will oversee development of the Wax Museum site located at Fifth and K streets, NW, more than 10 acres in Columbia Heights, and the redevelopment of the Skyland Shopping Center in far Southeast. Mr. Freeman also sits as the NCRC representative on the Washington, DC Marketing Center board.
