Development authority CEO to be Democratic luncheon speaker

Nevada Appeal staff report

Rob Hooper, president and chief executive officer of the Northern Nevada Development Authority, will be the featured speaker at Monday's Democratic luncheon.

NNDA is responsible for economic development in Nevada's Sierra Region — Carson City as well as Douglas, Lyon and Storey counties.

Hooper has served in his present position since January 2009, in the darkest days of the Great Recession. He has been able to draw on decades of business management experience in the fields of health care, financial services, manufacturing, retail, resort development and tourism. This diverse background has given him a depth of insight into the complex relationships within the Northern Nevada marketplace.

This event is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on Monday, in the banquet room of Carson City's Round Table, on Retail Drive just off College Parkway.

Sponsored by the Democratic Men's Committee, these luncheons help to defer recurring expenses at Carson City's Democratic HQ. Suggested donations of $5 or more gratefully accepted but aren't required. All are welcome.
