Stacy Voigt has joined Delta County Economic Development as executive director.
“I am excited to roll up my shirt sleeves and get to work with the community to help them achieve their greatest economic potential,” Voigt said. “I think this is an amazing time for me to join DCED, and I am looking forward to the opportunity to lead the County into an even more prosperous future.”
Voigt succeeds Trish Thibodo as director of the DCED, a not-for-profit membership organization working to strengthen and diversify the Delta County economy.
Voigt previously worked as a project coordinator with the Loveland Downtown Partnership & Development Authority. She also served as vice president of parks, recreation, historic preservation and the arts advisory board for the City of Edgewater. She brings to her new duties experience with renewal authorities and tax increment financing, working with public and private partnerships, grant writing, business retention and expansion and running nonprofit organizations.
She’s master’s prepared in urban and regional planning from the University of Colorado at Denver and holds an undergraduate degree in design studies from the University of Colorado at Boulder.
John Gavan, president of the DCED board of directors, said members of the executive committee are pleased with Voigt’s hiring. “We feel she will be a great addition to DCED and help to advance DCED’s contributions to the community.”
