LINDA HUTSON GREEN
Vice president of economic development, Institute for Advanced Learning and Research; Executive director, Southern Virginia Regional Alliance, Danville
Throughout her career, Linda Hutson Green has been the only woman on her work team more than once, but it hasn’t prevented her from making an impact.
Today, she’s the first woman to hold the role of vice president of economic development for the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research, in addition to directing and overseeing the strategic vision of the Southern Virginia Regional Alliance. The complementary work at both organizations, which are focused on economic and workforce development and manufacturing, she says, creates a collaborative approach to marketing the region’s resources.
