GCEDC to Search for New Marketing Director
Written by WBTA STAFF on June 28, 2018
The Genesee County Economic Development Center (GCEDC) is conducting a search to hire a new director of marketing and communications. The position was recently vacated when it was announced that the current director, Rachel Tabelski will become the next Director of the Batavia Development Corporation.
The Director of Marketing and Communications is responsible for the development, implementation and management of marketing and communications plans and activities in support of the GCEDC’s mission. Among the responsibilities include, but are not limited to: development, implementation and management of the organization’s marketing collaterals; media and public relations; management of web site, social media and customer communications; sales support; and, public policy engagement.
“The position has really evolved over the last few years under Rachel as the person we are seeking to hire will have a number of responsibilities as the role touches all aspects of the operations of our agency,” said Steve Hyde, GCEDC President and CEO. “It is a dynamic and a critically important role as our region continues to attract interest among national and international site selectors, but also keeping in mind that we have many local and regional companies seeking to grow and expand here and we need to make sure our marketing and communications are aligned for both.”
Those interested in applying for the position must respond by July 12, 2018. A job listing has been posted on the GCEDC website at www.gcedc.com.
