Aris Melissaratos, Interim Dean of the Brown School of Business and Leadership, and James T. Brady, member of Stevenson’s Board of Trustees, have been named to the Maryland Economic Development Commission (MEDC) by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan. The commission works closely with the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED) to establish economic development policy and support the DBED’s efforts to create, attract and retain businesses and jobs.

Melissaratos and Brady are among 11 newly added members.

“We are fortunate to draw upon the expertise of some of the best and brightest minds in Maryland to evaluate the state’s business climate and develop strategies that advance our key economic development priorities,” said Governor Hogan. “I look forward to working closely with the MEDC as we continue to spread the word that Maryland is open for business and promote the state as a great place to live and work and grow.”

Both Melissaratos and Brady formerly served as the Secretary of the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development. Melissaratos and Brady will represent Baltimore County and Frederick County, respectively, on the commission.
