One year after announcing new President & CEO Lee Umphrey, EMDC (Eastern Maine Development Corporation) continues to evolve with a brand refresh and new website at

This is EMDC’s first website redesign in almost 10 years. “Our new branding and website is vibrant and interactive, and is a reflection of our programs and focus,” said Umphrey. “Working with friends and partners, Designlab in Millinocket and community photographer Jeff Kirlin, we are creating a strong brand that captures EMDC’s essence in connecting to communities and the region.”

The new logo represents forward motion, with three colors coming together to symbolize EMDC’s three service areas: business, community and workforce development. The website showcases EMDC’s programs and the people they serve, the vast network of partnerships they use as a resource network to grow rural Maine, and the innovative industries that are driving our economy.

EMDC fosters public-private relationships and leverages resources that help businesses, communities and individuals reach long-term goals and prosperity. EMDC is the only economic development company in the state that provides services to these three groups under one umbrella. Their integrated programs and individualized services accelerate economic and workforce development through this holistic approach.
