June 1, 2016 Saratoga County is Growing, So Are We
As many of you know, starting and launching a business – while exciting – can be difficult. It takes a clear roadmap and time to get to a place where momentum builds to a sustainable pace. Here at the Partnership, we’ve spent the past year planning, building organizational infrastructure, and collaborating. Today, our growth story continues as we welcome two professionals to our team, nearly doubling our capacity.
Shelby Schneider, a seasoned and passionate economic development professional, will be our director of business retention and expansion. As expected, we found with the March launch of Business First Saratoga that Saratoga County businesses are in need of a dedicated point of contact to help them navigate challenges and opportunities. Shelby’s wealth and depth of Saratoga County economic development experience will be very much welcomed.
Also joining us is Jennifer Dufore, a Saratoga County native who has recently moved back to the area from Boston. She adds over 15 years of nonprofit and business experience and will serve as our office assistant and bookkeeper.
We couldn’t be more excited to welcome both of them to the team!
