Jared Duval serves as Economic Development Director at the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development, where he is responsible for providing business support to working lands and green economy businesses across the state. He also manages Vermont's Northern Border Regional Commission program, which invests in economic and community development projects in Essex, Orleans, Caledonia, Lamoille, Franklin, and Grand Isle counties. Jared also serves on the boards of the Working Lands Enterprise Initiative and the Clean Energy Development Fund, and is an advisor to the Farm and Forest Viability Program, the Vermont Agricultural and Forest Products Development Program, the Farm to Plate Steering Committee, the Vermont Wood Manufacturer's Association, and the Vermont Environmental Consortium. Part of the ninth generation of his family to call Vermont home, Jared loves working to help sustain and grow the parts of our community and economy that give Vermont its unique identity and vitality. He grew up in the Upper Connecticut River Valley (Fairlee) but lives in Montpelier with his wife, the Rev. Joan Javier-Duval and their hockey-obsessed son. Before moving back to Vermont, Jared was an author and Fellow with Demos, the New York based think tank. His first book, Next Generation Democracy: What the Open Source Revolution Means for Power, Politics, and Change, was published by Bloomsbury in 2010. He has earned master's degrees in social science research from the University of Cambridge (2012) and in Public Affairs, with a concentration in domestic policy, from Princeton University (2014).
