Read COE Executive Director Catharine Young’s announcement:
“This exciting position’s title is Business Development Manager, and the job entails providing business and technical support to food and beverage companies to help them grow, in addition to providing leadership and management of our other Business Development Specialists.  Since the CoE started in mid-2018, we have helped create and retain more than 300 jobs, and assisted companies with achieving more than $70 million in non-job economic impacts.  We have worked with more than 300 companies with various levels of engagement, and we receive requests for assistance on a nearly daily basis.  Our success has occurred without much promotion, and we recently hired a seasoned communications professional to begin spreading the word on a wider basis about what we do.  I expect referrals will only increase in the coming months, especially as the economy and society continue to recover from the pandemic shutdown.  Filling the Business Development Manager is a critical component of continuing to develop the CoE.”
