On the job for only a little more than a month, the newest program director of the Washington County Economic Growth Partnership has already rolled up her sleeves and put together a lengthy “to-do” list.
Tammi Gibson, who resides in Salem, is originally from Pittsburgh, PA. She is now rooted in Washington County with involvement in the schools and community. “Our family chose to live in Washington County for a few reasons. We were looking for a small-town atmosphere, schools that offered a great education, balanced with sports and clubs, and a location within close proximity to larger cities. I look forward to contributing my knowledge to the Washington County Economic Growth Partnership and building Washington County’s positive impact in the Southern Indiana Region. Great things are on the horizon for Washington County,” Gibson said. She describes herself as friendly, hard-working and motivated to make the community stronger.
Gibson accepted the position on March 24 and began her duties on April 19. Her background includes a smorgasbord of experience including territory management for HVAC product sales, real estate, marketing, sales, website management, and more.
Gibson holds a BSBA in Communications Management from Robert Morris University. She lives in Salem with her husband Mark, son Jimmy who will be a senior and daughter Maggie who will be a sophomore, both at Salem High School.
Rhonda Smith, WCEGP board president said, “Tammi is a breath of fresh air for the organization. She is confident, well-spoken, positive, and pleasant. We’re excited to see where she takes Washington County!”
