Q&A: What’s something interesting about you that isn’t on your resume? “Attended Valley Forge Military Academcy for high school and was an extra in the filming of the movie “TAPS” which featured George C. Scott, Timothy Hutton, Sean Penn, Tom Cruise. Sean Penn was down to earth, Tom Cruise seemed a little too intense.”

As a public-private organization, the Claymont Renaissance Development Corporation is invested in reviving the community that used to be dominated by the steel industry. In coordination with the state, New Castle County and other government entities, Brett Saddler has been focused on strategies that will make Claymont an ideal place to work and live. In recent years, Saddler has helped lead the way for a riverwalk project and worked on a master plan incorporating major redevelopment concepts. On the horizon, a new cold-storage facility and train station will help kickstart massive economic development in the area.
