Director of Economic and Business Development
WORKING WITH ME—THREE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW:
- My insight on Oklahoma’s geography, people, and culture comes from first-hand experience. You’ll be hiring my neighbors and making deals with local organizations and state agencies that I work with regularly. I advocate for you as an insider.
- My track record spans years and marks successful investments worth hundreds of millions of dollars that reinforce our communities’ reputations as great places to live and work. Most recently I led the development of a new 2400-acre industrial park, which spurred a $360 million investment, workforce development initiatives, and partnerships with local, state, federal, and tribal entities. I am proud to have been part of the team that secured the award-winning Sofidel project.
- I am a governor-appointed member of the State Board of Career and Technology Education, and I serve on the Oklahoma Governor’s Economic Development Marketing Team, Oklahoma Economic Development Council, Foreign Direct Investment Team, Oklahoma Southeast, and Tulsa’s Future. I am also a member of the International Economic Development Council, Southern Economic Development Council, the Utility Economic Development Association and the Corporate Office Real Estate Network.
