BRIDGEPORT – Genesis Partners Limited Partnership, developers of local master-planned community Charles Pointe, have been awarded the Henry A. Thrasher Memorial Award. The award is given annually by the Harrison County Development Authority (HCDA) to honor a "significant contribution…to the economic development of Harrison County."

Genesis Partners Director of Development, Rob Stuart, accepted the award, along with colleagues Tom Hall, licensed landscape architect, and Todd Satterfield, project manager. Stuart said, "It’s a great honor to receive this award from the Harrison County Development Authority. Genesis Partners is a company that operates with a great desire to improve the quality of life for all West Virginians. To be recognized for our contributions to the economic development of north central West Virginia is very rewarding."

David Cutlip, president of the HCDA, presented the award at a ceremony last week. "This award – which is equivalent to a ‘developer of the year’ recognition – is awarded in the name of Henry A. Thrasher, founding board member, civic leader and business owner. It represents the strong spirit, clear vision and sense of volunteerism which Mr. Thrasher had, and this recipient – Genesis Partners – has for their Harrison County community," Cutlip said.

Genesis Partners Managing Partner James A. Corton said, "We appreciate the recognition given our organization by these leaders of Harrison County. It is important to have our staff honored for their professionalism and progress. Our goal at Charles Pointe has always been to contribute to the economic growth of North Central West Virginia."

Genesis Partners joins past Henry A. Thrasher Memorial Award winners John L. Westfall and A. Kim Haws; Elsie Lorna Howard; Donald Molter; and Dean C. Ramsey, Esq., among others. "We are happy to be in the esteemed company of such generous and loyal Harrison County citizens," Stuart said.
