MARTINSVILLE, VA – The West Piedmont Planning District Commission Board of Commissioners has appointed Kristina Eberly to serve as the next Executive Director.

Eberly follows Michael Armbrister, who served as West Piedmont Executive Director for three years.

“I am honored and grateful to be appointed Executive Director and look forward to collaborating with our partners on new projects and programs to benefit our communities,” she said in a news release. “I chose to make rural Virginia my home and was so fortunate to discover the West Piedmont region and all it has to offer.”

Eberly joined the planning commission in November 2020 and served as the Associate Director, Regional Programs Director and Interim Executive Director.

Prior to joining the WPPDC, she spent over 16 years with the Tri-County Council for the Lower Eastern Shore of Maryland as Executive Coordinator focusing on economic development, grant writing and administration and legislative activities.

She also has experience as Grants Administrator for two Maryland cities.

“The West Piedmont region is on the cusp of so many great things. People on all levels are working to recruit business and industry, expand educational opportunities, improve broadband access, expand housing choices, grow the tourism industry, and support local small business and the West Piedmont PDC is proud to be a partner in these endeavors,” Eberly said. “We will continue to partner with our local governments and regional organizations to secure state and federal funding, strengthen our communities and make the most of the opportunities available.”
