BUSINESS COUNCIL BEGINS EXECUTIVE SEARCH
The Santa Cruz County Business Council is seeking qualified candidates to replace outgoing Executive Director Casey Beyer. Interested candidates should contact Board Chair Rick Weiss.
April 14th, 2017—The Santa Cruz County Business Council (SCCBC) has begun the search to find a new Executive Director who will oversee management of the 80+ member company organization and their advocacy work. The outgoing Executive Director, Casey Beyer will be starting in his new role as the Chief Executive Officer of the Santa Cruz Area Chamber of Commerce on April 1st. Policy Analyst Robert Singleton, who also works as the Government Affairs Director for the Santa Cruz County Association of Realtors®, and as a Senior Marketing Strategist for Santa Cruz Fiber, has been appointed Interim Executive Director while the search is underway.
The SCCBC has served as the County-wide voice of the Business Community for over 20 years, though is perhaps best known for their recent endorsement and contributions toward the passage of Measure D, the transportation sales tax measure that passed last November with over two-thirds voter approval. Business Council members and staff worked extensively on the Measure D campaign, and helped to raise over $450,000 dollars to secure its passage. The Business Council has also been a vocal proponent for the development of new housing across the County, and for the securing of a sustainable water supply through its public advocacy work.
“Given our mission of promoting economic vitality throughout the County, we are excited about the prospect of new, forward thinking leadership that can help us implement our core policy objectives” said Rick Weiss, CFO of Bay Federal Credit Union and 2017 SCCBC Board Chair. “2016 was a landmark year for the Business Council, and we feel strongly we can build on that success to broaden our membership and effectively advocate for the interests of our members, and the community as a whole.”
