Economic developer Ted Clem joins Commerce project manager team

MONTGOMERY, Alabama – The Alabama Department of Commerce has added veteran economic developer Ted Clem as a senior project manager as the state agency targets more new jobs and investment.

Clem has served as a recruiter in Alabama, Florida and Georgia in a career that dates back to the early 1990s. Most recently, he was president of the Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission in Georgia, where he led efforts to create a new industrial park, establish an incentives fund and recover jobs lost during the recession.

“Coming to the Alabama Department of Commerce is an honor and dream come true for me. As an Alabama native, I’ve always wanted to use my talent and skills on behalf of my home state,” Clem said. “Having served in two neighboring states, I can tell you the competition views the team at Commerce with admiration and respect. I feel privileged to be part of that team.”
