The Greater Towson Committee, Towson's downtown development, planning and placemaking organization, today announced the departure of its Senior Executive. Cynthia Bledsoe is stepping down after seven years with the group to pursue new professional opportunities.
As Executive Director, Bledsoe lead numerous downtown development initiatives and participated in local, regional and State of Maryland planning processes while managing the local GTC Board of Directors. She is a member of the Urban Land Institute, Congress for New Urbanism, the Maryland Chapter of the American Planning Association and the Maryland Association of Nonprofits. She studied planning and urbanism at the University of Miami, School of Architecture.
Bledsoe stated, "My heart will always be in Towson. It has been a fulfilling pleasure to serve alongside such dedicated leaders in business, community and government. I remain a champion of this place and its people."
Bledsoe has been tapped as Executive Producer of a newly formed Entertainment Subsidiary of Thomas Herding Technique, founded by Kerry M. Thomas, an equine athletic psychologist and author of "Horse Profiling: The Secret to Motivating Equine Athletes." Her initial foray in entertainment was as producer of an award winning branded entertainment series. She will also have publicist duties with the parent company.
