(CALGARY, AB – July 30, 2013) MDB Insight is pleased to announce that Court Ellingson, a senior consultant in our Calgary office, has been elected to the 2013 Economic Developers Alberta (EDA) Board of Directors. Court joins a diverse group of individuals extending their experience and knowledge to an organization and body of professionals that plays an essential role in helping Alberta communities build, grow and diversify their economies.

“I am excited to be able to contribute and give back to my community in this way” states Court. “Economic developers play an important role in ensuring Alberta achieves its full potential and it’s wonderful to be a part of that.”

Court has dedicated more than 12 years to the field of community and economic development in Indonesia and Canada. He has worked with MDB Insight since April 2009 and opened the Calgary office in August 2011.

Court will serve on the EDA’s Raising the Bar committee and assist the board in bringing economic development ideas, knowledge and tools to communities in Alberta that have not had the capacity to undertake economic development initiatives on their own.
