Discover Burien Announces Steve Gilbert As New Executive Director
The Discover Burien Association announced Wednesday (Oct. 28th) the appointment of Steve Gilbert as their new Executive Director.
Starting the first week of November, Gilbert will be charged with promoting Burien as â€œThe Place to Be.â€
â€œIt is a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with such a great organization and I am excited to get started,” Gilbert said. “Burien is a true gem in the Northwest and a tremendous community. There are so many great things about it and yet it is full of opportunities. This is the right time for businesses to look to Burien as a great place to do business.â€
â€œWe are so excited to have someone of Steveâ€™s caliber to lead the organization,” added Lori Alden, branch manager of Prudential Northwest Realty and Associates and Discover Burien chair. “He has strong ties with the business and commercial real estate communities, as well as working with volunteers on economic development initiatives. We had a lot of great people interested in the position, but Steve brought all of the enthusiasm, work ethic, and skills we needed. He will have his plate full here, but he has a tremendous support group of all the members that make up the Discover Burien Association.â€
In July, we broke the news that Kim McKoy would be the new Executive Director, but she had to step down before assuming the role due to family issues. After the resignation of Patty Sader in June, Discover Burien resumed its search for a replacement.
