Meet the Staff - ABBEY GILROY, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR.

Abbey has been in real estate development for 15 years with an early focus on regionally based retail and office development. In that role, she gained experience in working with numerous municipalities and markets. Her sights changed to a more local emphasis when she joined NDC in 2011. In her current role as Executive Director, she engages with community leaders and elected officials to identify areas of economic opportunity. Through public/private partnerships, Neighborhood Development Corporation has brought density and retail into neighborhoods that have been lacking such for decades. It has also brought private investment into areas where it normally would not have been considered.

Abbey was born and raised in Des Moines and has a degree from Iowa State University.
