SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga County Prosperity Partnership President and CEO Shelby Schneider has announced she will depart from the organization.
“I will be moving on to a new opportunity that will allow me to grow personally and professionally but I will miss the incredible people and businesses I have had the pleasure of working with here in Saratoga County over the past 21 years. I wish them all a bright and prosperous future,” Schneider said.
Schneider was appointment President and CEO of the Saratoga County Prosperity Partnership in February 2020, after serving as Director of Business Retention and Expansion, and as Vice President of the organization, which she joined in 2016. Previously, she spent 13 years at the Saratoga Economic Development Corporation as a member of the economic development team that brought GLOBALFOUNDRIES to Saratoga County.
The Prosperity Partnership is a Saratoga County-based economic development organization. The mission of the organization is to secure sustainable jobs and capital investment by attracting new business to Saratoga County, and retaining existing businesses by assisting them to grow.
“I’d like to thank the Saratoga County Prosperity Partnership board of directors and Saratoga County Board of Supervisors for the opportunity to lead this organization,” Schneider said. “Although the past year navigating the organization during a global pandemic has been incredibly challenging, it has also been equally rewarding.”
Schneider’s new position is focused on economic development, and a formal announcement regarding her move will be made within the next few weeks, she said.
