Suzy Moyd Named Executive Director of Main Street Hartsville

Hartsville, S.C. – Nov. 27, 2013 – Suzy Moyd has been named Executive Director of Main Street Hartsville, an organization focusing on building an attractive and economically vibrant downtown commercial district.

The organization, a program of the City of Hartsville and the Community Foundation for a Better Hartsville, has been created in partnership with Main Street South Carolina. In this role, Moyd will work toward downtown district improvements through business development and recruitment, promotions, design improvements and more.

She brings to the position more than two decades of experience in business management, promotion, public relations and marketing.  Recently, she has served as Marketing Director for Dancing with the Stars of Darlington County, a fundraiser featuring local celebrities and dancing professionals paired into competitive teams, taking place at Hartsville’s Center Theater in January 2014, and benefitting the nonprofit Pee Dee Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Assault.

A longtime Hartsville resident, Moyd has experience creating and developing a small business, after opening and managing Edible Arrangements of Florence. She has worked as an account executive and copywriter for several advertising firms, and has earned a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Advertising from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

“I’m very excited to begin working with downtown merchants and businesses as well as Hartsville organizations and officials,” Moyd said. “With a historic business district, plenty of other attractions nearby and a supportive community, Hartsville has long had the foundation of a great downtown.  I can’t wait for Main Street Hartsville to give downtown the boost of energy that it needs to become a modern-day commerce hub while preserving its heritage and charm.”

Main Street Hartsville comes as one of the many downtown redevelopment partnerships initiated by Main Street South Carolina, a program of the Municipal Association of South Carolina. These participating programs from around the state all coordinate efforts through the National Main Street Center’s Four-Point Approach:  organization, promotion, design and economic restructuring.
