City names New Economic Development Director

The City of Granbury is thrilled to announce Lance LaCour as the new Director of Economic Development. He will be advising and assisting City Manager Chris Coffman in the development and implementation of economic development marketing strategies.

LaCour comes to Granbury from Partnership Lake Houston (Humble, TX), where he was the President/CEO. His previous experience includes 15 years with the Katy Area Economic Development Council and 14 years of economic development in Alabama and Mississippi.  He holds a B.A. in Political Science and a Masters in Economic Development from the University of Southern Mississippi. LaCour also has numerous economic development-related certifications and awards. 

“I am excited about the infrastructure and toolbox that is in place for economic development. This includes the Commerce Centre of Granbury that has rail access, the airport runway expansion with aviation sites for aircraft operations, and the 4,000-acre tax increment zone,” LaCour said. “From a quality-of-life perspective, I am looking forward to recreational opportunities that Lake Granbury provides as well as the fantastic Square.”

Identifying and executing strategies to retain and attract new economic development interests is a big part of the job. LaCour will coordinate activities such as site tours, presentations and meetings between prospective client companies and the City of Granbury, Hood County, real estate and development representatives, local area businesses, and the Chamber of Commerce.

“I’m excited that someone with Lance’s experience and skills is joining the City’s team,” Coffman said. “He has the potential to help create and retain businesses which in turn provide good paying jobs which result in a better community.”

LaCour, a New Orleans native, is married, with two adult children. His first day on the job is June 13.
