“We are thrilled to have Sam Danner to lead our economic development efforts in Greer’s historic downtown,” said Reno Deaton, GDC Executive Director. “Greer Station has become a well-respected brand representing some of the best entertainment and dining opportunities that the Upstate has to offer and truly unique retail. Sam’s love of the Greer community and his creativity will surely help to preserve and propel the Greer Station brand.”

“It’s hard to adequately express how excited I am about this position and the opportunity to work with a dedicated team that cares about downtown Greer as much as I do,” said Danner. “We’re fortunate in Greer to have organizations, like the Greer Development Corporation, Greer Station Association and the Partnership for Tomorrow, that work closely with our city and communities to help develop the smart growth we’ve experienced downtown. Those groups and our communities make our downtown a special place, and I’m thrilled to join them in continuing to keep Greer unique and growing. I can’t wait to see what we’ll accomplish over the next few years.”
