January Speaker - Davon Barbour
President & CEO - Downtown Development District

Just about a year ago, Davon Barbour left California to try to resurrect New Orleans as one of the best cities in the nation.  With a professional background in economic and community development and retail atrraction and retention, he assumed the leadership of the Downtown Development District, a business improvement district that provides enhanced economic development, cleaning and safety services in 160 block area bounded by Iberville St, the Pontchartrain Expressway, Claiborne Ave and the river.   His goal is to carry a world class downtown that leverages the assets within the district to create prosperity for all of us.   He states "At the end of the day, success is when someone says I opened a business in New Orleans and the DDD was great to work with".   

We are so honored to have Davon Barbour as our speaker to address the DDD's programs geared to help our visitors as well as safety concerns for many of us who work in the CBD.
