SWWDC and CREDC hire new Director of Business Services
Bonnie L. Moore, an experienced international business developer and project manager, has joined SWWDC and Columbia River Economic Development Council (CREDC) as Business Services Director to drive business expansion and retention efforts in Southwest Washington.
“We are very pleased to have Bonnie join our team,” said Lisa Nisenfeld, SWWDC’s Executive Director. “Bonnie brings with her a wealth of experience which will help businesses in our region grow and succeed, thereby creating and protecting jobs.”
Bonnie will be responsible for serving the needs of local businesses and assisting them with expansion and workforce issues. She will also oversee activities and programs related to business attraction and retention.
“I see it as my responsibility to get out there and make sure businesses know that we are here to support them in executing their strategic plans to grow,” she said.
The SWWDC and the CREDC jointly hired Bonnie because they share business outreach goals and strategies. “Businesses will benefit from learning about the full range of assistance available to them, whether it’s through our economic development partners or through various workforce programs,” remarked Bart Phillips, President of the CREDC.
Bonnie spent the last ten years working in the high-tech and consumer goods manufacturing industries and recently relocated to Camas, Washington. “Her experiences in economic development from a company’s point of view make her an invaluable asset,” commented Phillips. Bonnie has a Masters in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California at Berkeley.
