Troy Wayman – President and CEO of One Acadiana

Troy Wayman joined One Acadiana as its President and CEO in February 2018. One Acadiana is a business-led, privately-funded economic development organization serving a nine-parish area in South Louisiana.

Troy previously served as vice president of economic development for the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce, a 2,000-member organization and economic development group. Under his leadership, the region experienced the creation of more than 8,000 jobs and nearly $3 billion in capital investments.

This interview affords an opportunity to get to know Troy and learn more about his extensive experience in economic development.  He brings an open and inclusive attitude to his new position with One Acadiana. While focused on marketing Acadiana’s assets to attract new business as well as working to retain existing South Louisiana companies, he believes that making our region’s voice known in a harmonized manner at the state legislature will serve business and infrastructure development well.

One Acadiana offers many workshops, social networking opportunities, and business resources. Member driven, businesses of all sizes invest in One Acadiana to enable its program of work.
