Charleston Attorney To Lead SCEDA Legislative Committee

Jun 13, 2018 02:35PM ● By Kathleen Maris
Womble Bond Dickinson attorney Stephanie Yarbrough has been named chair of the Legislative Committee for the South Carolina Economic Developers’ Association (SCEDA). Yarbrough was elected to the SCEDA Board of Directors in 2017.

The legislative chair for SCEDA travels the state extensively for the year’s appointment meeting with the economic development and business community and working with the lobbyists for SCEDA to set its public policy agenda and to draft and work on its legislative items.

Yarbrough has played a role in many of South Carolina’s largest economic development deals of the past 20 years. She works closely with companies seeking to expand or relocate operations to the Carolinas and the Southeastern United States. Her efforts on behalf of clients have led to the creation of thousands of new jobs and billions of dollars in new investments. When the New York Times profiled Charleston’s economic boom in 2017, Yarbrough was one of the local leaders the Times turned to for insight.
