Angie White, CEcD

Angie White, Chief Operating Officer, is a Certified Economic Developer, as designated by the International Economic Development Council, with over 25 years of economic development, workforce development, and finance experience.  Angie was hired in 2008 to develop a new workforce marketing program for NLEP. That role has given her a thorough understanding of the workforce development ecosystem throughout North Louisiana, the state, and the best practices of communities outside Louisiana.

As COO, she oversees organizational operations for NLEP, including finance and audit, investor relations, and governance, while still playing an active role in the region’s many workforce development initiatives. Angie serves on the workforce committee of the Northwest Louisiana Manufacturing Managers Council, chairs the workforce development committee of the Northwest Louisiana chapter of SHRM, is a director on the Workforce Training Alliance Board and the Workforce Development Board for the City of Shreveport,  and is actively involved on the Northwest Louisiana JumpStart team, which advises secondary education partners on regional employers’ career and technical education needs. She was instrumental in standing up the Northwest Louisiana Chapter of FAME (Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education) and is a member of the Accredited Economic Development Organization Committee of the International Economic Development Council.

Before NLEP, Angie worked for twelve years with EMP Global in Washington, DC as its Portfolio Officer and Investment Analyst with the Latin America Group.

She earned her Master of Business Administration and Master of Arts in International Affairs from the George Washington University in Washington, D.C. She is a Shreveport native and a graduate of Centenary College with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. In 2013, Angie was honored with the Community Gem award from the Community Foundation of North Louisiana for her community volunteer work, and in 2018, she was a finalist for the Virginia K. Shehee Most Influential Woman Award.
