Leadership Alliance CEO Stacey Duncan Awarded 2023 Above & Beyond Award by City & State New York

Binghamton Business News

BINGHAMTON, NY- Leadership Alliance CEO, Stacey Duncan, has been named a recipient of City & State New York’s 2023 Above & Beyond Award. City & State is the premier media organization dedicated to covering New York’s local and state politics and policy providing in-depth, non-partisan coverage on the key issues impacting New York. City & State’s Above & Beyond Award recognizes the 50 most influential and thought-provoking Women across New York that have demonstrated exemplary leadership in their field, combined with having made significant contributions to society.

This award from City & State follows two additional recognitions Duncan received from the organization back in 2022. Duncan was also named to the Economic Development Power 100 List as well as the Upstate New York Power 100 List for her dedication to ushering in an era of transformative revitalization and economic resurgence in the Southern Tier. In her role as CEO of the Leadership Alliance, Duncan serves as the chief executive of both the Broome County Industrial Development Agency/Local Development Corporation and the Greater Binghamton Chamber of Commerce, directing the organizations’ efforts to pursue economic and community development projects for the benefit of all residents of Greater Binghamton. This includes the implementation of the organization's strategic plan, business retention and expansion efforts, talent attraction, and the pursuit of new and innovative initiatives to enhance business development in Broome County, NY. Since taking on her role in 2019, Stacey has championed nearly $900 million in new investments through exciting projects such as the Oakdale Commons Redevelopment, Bluestone Wind Farm, United Health Services Wilson Campus Expansion, and the revitalization of the Endicott-Johnson Victory Building.

“I am incredibly honored to be recognized by City & State along with forty-nine other inspiring women leaders across New York State. The work we have accomplished and this award would not be possible without the hard-work of my Leadership Alliance team, my two boards of directors, and the support of our community,” said Leadership Alliance CEO, Stacey Duncan.
