Rosslyn - Virginia's mini-city across the Potomac River from Georgetown in the nation's capital - is undergoing a rapid transformation. To help catalyze the changes that are turning Rosslyn into a 24-hour mixed-use urban center, the Rosslyn Business Improvement District (BID) has appointed a new executive director, Mary-Claire Burick.
"We are very fortunate to have Mary-Claire Burick at the helm of the new Rosslyn,” said Peter N. Greenwald, President of the Rosslyn BID and Senior Advisor for Penzance Companies.“This is an obvious fit as Rosslyn takes its place at the vanguard of the region’s technology, media, and business activity,”
“This is an important time in Rosslyn’s history, and I am excited and inspired to be leading the BID’s role as a catalyst for the new Rosslyn," said Ms. Burick. "The landscape has changed; we are small business-friendly and home to start-ups, media, and Fortune 500 companies. We’re a ‘smart’ diverse community with a modern, people-friendly infrastructure that provides easy access to power without high taxes and crushing regulations. Rosslyn is no longer just an alternative – we’re the first choice whether it’s to lease, buy, build, or expand – Rosslyn is ready. We want your business.”
Ms. Burick previously headed the Arlington, VA-based management consulting firm MC Strategy LLC, which she founded in 2009 after a 20-year career managing operations for Allbritton Communications and other major broadcast media organizations in the Washington, DC area.
The Rosslyn BID was founded in 2003. It provides initiatives, services, events, and financial support benefiting businesses, workers, and residents.
