The Communications and Marketing Team have consistently demonstrated outstanding contributions to the state through their responsiveness and professionalism, both internally and externally.
Internally, they support the communication and marketing needs of 16 GOED programs, which enables the program managers to do their job more effectively. They tackle countless GRAMA requests, which allow our program to continue focusing on what they do best. This team also implemented a state of the art website that conveys the state’s strong economic development assets, within tight deadlines.
Externally, the Governor’s Ecomonic Development Summit has experienced increased attendance and success year after year, due to the execution and leadership of Michael Sullivan and the support of the communications and marketing team.
Additionally, this team takes pride in high quality collaboration and coordination with a multitude of economic development partners and stakeholders. They also consistently and professionally manage key press relationships, which have helped the state gain numerous accolades and recognitions.
It is because of these efforts and their tireless commitment to the state that GOED proudly nominates the communications and marketing team for the Governor’s Award for Outstanding Public Service.
