Bonnie Moore has resigned from her position as the Columbia River Economic Development Council’s vice president of business growth and innovation.
CREDC President Mike Bomar said Moore’s resignation Thursday was effective immediately. He said Moore, 34, would be pursuing other opportunities. Moore and the CREDC had reached “mutual agreement and acceptance” on the resignation, he added.
Bomar said he is reshuffling staff assignments until a replacement is hired, and that Kimberly Blake Pincheira, CREDC’s manager of investor relations, would assume some of Moore’s duties on an interim basis.
Moore said Tuesday that she left the job for personal reasons, and that she would pursue opportunities she could not pursue while working at CREDC. She said she intends to remain in Vancouver.
“My four years at CREDC changed my personal and professional perspective about public-private partnerships; it’s not often that we get to live, work and breathe every day how to drive positive change in a growing community while having the advantage of so many different perspectives, being at the crossroads of business, government, education, and infrastructure,” she said in a statement to The Columbian.
Before joining the CREDC in 2010, Moore spent 12 years in the private sector, working in business development, international operations and project management in both the high-tech and manufacturing industries in North America, Europe, and Asia.
