AUBURN – Lewiston native, Amy Landry, was recently promoted to the position of Executive Director/CEO of the Androscoggin Valley Council of Governments and will assume her new role on July 21 following the retirement of Robert Thompson who has served as Executive Director for the last 25 years.
During her tenure, Landry’s duties and responsibilities have expanded, thoroughly preparing her for the opportunity to step into the Executive Director position. “Given Amy’s 20 years of experience working at AVCOG in a variety of programs and positions combined with her educational background and professional affiliations, AVCOG’s Executive Committee agreed she is a perfect fit for the agency,” shared David Duguay, AVCOG President.
AVCOG is a recognized leader in providing regional services to communities and works closely with their counterparts throughout the state. Landry noted, “I am committed to continuing this agency’s legacy and providing the leadership required to move AVCOG forward.”
