Kansas City Mayor Sly James has announced  his five appointments to the board of the Kansas City Economic Development Corp. The board was recently downsized and reorganized in a move that gives the mayor more authority over its dealings. James has one seat on economic development agency’s board and can appoint five others.

Here are the five James appointed:

  • Bridgette Williams, deputy director of the Heavy Constructors Association of Greater Kansas City. Williams had been chairwoman of the previous EDC board before the AdvanceKC reform plan was approved in mid-December.
  • Herb Sih, managing partner of Think Big Partners, an early-stage, technology-focused business incubator and accelerator located in Kansas City.
  • Tom Trabon, a licensed CPA who has been active with the Downtown Council and is chairman of the Kansas City Streetcar Authority.
  • Rosana Privitera Biondo, president of Mark One Electric Co., a specialty electrical contracting firm in Kansas City.
  • Spencer Fields, office leader and client manager in Mercer’s Kansas City and St. Louis offices.
