In recognition of the city’s economic development priorities and continued growth, the City of Marysville has appointed a regional leader in the field, Terrie Battuello, to a new position of Economic Development and Real Property Manager. Her first day on the job was Monday, May 16.
Battuello most recently served as Vice President Economic Development for Economic Alliance Snohomish County. Prior to that she was Chief of Business and Economic Development for the Port of Everett; Assistant to the City Manager/Economic Development Manager for the City of Bothell; and Policy Analyst and Chief Communications Officer for the Kitsap County Board of Commissioners.
“Terrie brings the energy and skillset we need to help realize the city’s vision for building out the Cascade Industrial Center and redeveloping our downtown and waterfront into vibrant, prosperous destinations,” said Gloria Hirashima, the city’s Chief Administrative Officer. “I’m delighted to welcome her to the leadership team.”
The city has poised the Cascade Industrial Center for region-wide success through major public infrastructure investments that address growth, development and employer incentives, and emerging mixed-use opportunities.
“Community leaders have set the stage for Marysville to shine and prosper while preserving the unique qualities of the city during an unprecedented period of growth,” Battuello said. “For me, serving a key role as part of the city team represents a significant milestone in my career and is a tremendous honor.”
One of 1,000 certified Economic Development professionals, Battuello earned this most prestigious professional designation through years of economic development experience, several years of study around the country and extensive testing. Reaccreditation every three years is required through continuing education and public service.
Battuello earned a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from City University and a master’s degree in Public Administration and Leadership from the Daniel J. Evans School of Public Policy & Governance at the University of Washington. She lives in north Everett.
