The Detroit Creative Corridor Center is searching for a new executive director after Matt Clayson announced he would be leaving the organization.

Clayson has served as the executive director of DC3 since its founding in 2010 as a joint initiative between the Business Leaders for Michigan and the College of Creative Studies.

“Matt not only established DC3 as a valuable resource for local creative industries but he helped put Detroit on the map for other businesses that understand the benefits of locating in or around a creative hub of talent,” Richard Rogers, president of the College for Creative Studies, said in a statement. “Under his leadership, DC3 has attracted new creative sector enterprises and jobs to Detroit, secured millions of dollars of investment in the area and successfully launched the internationally-recognized Detroit Design Festival.”

The annual festival has become one of the nation’s largest design events, attracting tens of thousands of visitors and displaying hundreds of local and international designers.
