Adam Gawarecki, vice president of the Denton Economic Development Partnership, was named one of the top 50 economic developers in the country.
The list was compiled by Consultant Connect, a consulting agency that connects economic developers and site consultants.
Gawarecki has been in the role since 2014 and works to help recruit companies to Denton. The EDP was established by the city and Denton Chamber of Commerce to create business opportunities in the city.
He will be highlighted on the company's social media pages and will be formally recognized during ECONOMIX, an economic development conference, in December.
