San Marcos Mercury | Local News from San Marcos and Hays County, Texas


Amy Madison has resigned as president and chief executive officer of the Greater San Marcos Partnership, the publicly funded regional economic development group she helped establish five years ago.



Her departure was announced in a statement released by Gary Gannon, the partnership’s spokesperson, this morning. The statement said Madison is pursuing other business opportunities.

“I am proud of the many accomplishments during my tenure that have positioned the greater San Marcos region as an enviable business environment. The work has been demanding, but professionally rewarding,” Madison said in the statement.

In the last two years, the partnership helped recruit businesses that created 310 jobs in Hays and Caldwell counties and expansions of existing businesses that resulted in 954 new jobs, Gannon said.

The partnership will begin a nationwide search for a new president and chief executive officer. The search committee will be chaired by Hays County Pct. 3 Commissioner Will Conley and advised by Pike Powers, an Austin attorney who acts as a consultant to the partnership.

The search effort will also be advised by Robert Gratz, a special assistant to Texas State University president Denise M. Trauth.
