High Point has a new economic development director.

Sandy Dunbeck has been the interim director since January. Before that, she had served for years as executive vice president of the High Point Economic Development Corporation. 

She's now officially the director. High Point EDC serves as a public-private partnership helping to retain and recruit business to the city. HAECO, Thomas Built Buses and HondaJet are some of the companies Dunbeck has worked with. 

She's one of two women rising to high-ranking positions in High Point this month. Tasha Logan Ford has been appointed as the city's manager. She'll be the first woman and first Black person to hold the job.

Dunbeck is replacing Loren Hill, who had been director of High Point EDC for 20 years before announcing his retirement in August.
