Dallas Economic Development Corporation appoints first CEO

Linda McMahon has officially been appointed the first CEO of the Dallas Economic Development Corporation (DEDC). The organization’s board of directors unanimously approved McMahon during a May 7 meeting. She will officially begin her role July 1.

McMahon previously served as CEO and president of a real estate agency before accepting her role with the DEDC. As CEO, McMahon will oversee the organization’s work to support local business, promote sustainable economic development and enhance Dallas’ infrastructure. She brings more than four decades of experience to the role.

“Linda McMahon’s depth of experience and strategic approach to economic development align perfectly with Dallas EDC’s mission,” DEDC President John Stephens said. “Her visionary leadership is exactly what we need to propel Dallas into a new era of economic prosperity.”

The city created the DEDC in January 2022 to function as an independent functionary to keep Dallas competitive with other urban areas. The DEDC helps drive investment and economic opportunities to the city, support job creation and market Dallas’ competitive advantages.
