Earlier this year, I was thrilled to join Tipmont and Wintek in the role of business development director. I was previously with Greater Lafayette Commerce for 24 years, most recently as vice president, economic development. My new role will build strong relations with existing and new customers throughout Tipmont and Wintek’s service area. I will also be working closely with the local community leadership to attract new industry and help create economic opportunities.
2019 was a phenomenal first year
We connected more than 700 new Wintek customers throughout the Linden and Battle Ground build areas, far ahead of our original business plan projections.
