Washington, D.C., September 8, 2009…Rachel L. Davis, LEED AP®, has joined the NoMa (North of Massachusetts Avenue) Business Improvement District (BID) in Washington, D.C. as Marketing and Events Manager. She will be responsible for the BID’s marketing, communications, events, and public relations, as well as implementing a strategic marketing vision for the neighborhood.

Ms. Davis joins the BID from the national design firm Cooper Carry in Alexandria, Virginia, where she was the firm’s first marketing professional to earn the LEED AP® accreditation from the U.S. Green Building Council. Earlier, she worked as a growth and development reporter for a small daily newspaper in the South. A car-free resident of the District’s Mount Pleasant neighborhood, she works on local economic development and promotion issues as a board member with Mount Pleasant Main Street. Ms. Davis is excited to join the growing crowds biking to work in NoMa each morning.

NoMa is a rapidly developing mixed-use neighborhood north of the U.S. Capitol and Union Station in Washington, D.C. In 2007-2008, private developers invested over $1 billion in the 35-block area covered by the NoMa BID, and have plans to develop more than 20 million square feet of office, residential, hotel, and retail space over the next ten years.
