The Board of Directors of the West Virginia Manufacturers Association announced Rebecca McPhail Randolph will serve as the organization's president, starting Nov. 1

Randolph currently works as president of the statewide economic development organization, Vision Shared. Before that, she was assistant vice president of development at Marshall University.

"Under Rebecca's strong leadership, the WVMA will continue to strategically shape the policy that will build on West Virginia's competitive strengths to create a stronger and more positive environment for sustaining and developing manufacturing in the state," Carl J. Boelter, chairman of the WVMA board of directors, said in a news release.

Randolph returned to her native West Virginia in 2003 after serving as grant development and research manager as well as interim director of development for the YMCA of Greater Cleveland. She also has worked for non-profit health care organizations in both West Virginia and Ohio.

Randolph replaces long-time WVMA President Karen Price, who has served the association for more than two decades, will retire at the end of the year. Price will continue as the chairwoman of the association's newly created education foundation.

"Karen has built a solid foundation for the WVMA, and I appreciate the confidence of the WVMA board in allowing me the opportunity to carry on this important work," Randolph said. "I look forward to the challenge of implementing the association's newly developed strategic plan during a critical period for manufacturing and the state as a whole."
