WORCESTER BUSINESS JOURNAL – The Marlborough Economic Development Corp has appointed Meredith Harris as its new executive director.
The organization responsible for promoting economic development in the city made the announcement last week. Harris joined the organization last July as director of business development and has been managing the organization’s day-to-day activities as director of operations since the May departure of former executive director, Tim Cummings.
“When Tim left, she stepped in and continued to carry our MEDC’s mission without skipping a beat, and we saw that she has the leadership and commitment that we needed in a new executive director,” MEDC Board of Directors Chairman Richard Tomanek said in a statement.
Harris holds an undergraduate degree in writing and communications from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and a graduate degree in public affairs from University of Massachusetts Boston. Prior to joining MEDC, she spent five years working as a legislative aide at the Massachusetts State House, followed by a three-year stint as part of the real estate group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Investment Management Company.
