Commerce taps Brenda Tuck as first rural development manager

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce, today announced that Brenda Tuck has been hired as the department’s first rural development manager to assist rural counties and communities better compete for job-creating projects.

Tuck previously served in Commerce’s Workforce Development Division as Regional Workforce Council Liaison, working closely with the councils, employers and educators to ensure that the workforce needs of businesses are being met at a local level. Before joining Commerce in 2016, she served in economic development positions in Southwest Alabama, including Marengo, Dallas and Wilcox counties.

“Brenda has extensive experience working on the front lines of economic development in rural Alabama counties, so she knows the specific challenges these areas face when it comes to competing for projects,” Secretary Canfield said.

“Her background in both economic and workforce development makes her the ideal choice to help rural communities navigate the economic development process.”
