Last year’s internship has turned into this year’s job opportunity for Liberty resident Christopher Lockwood.
Chris is the Sullivan County Partnership for Economic Development’s Marketing Outreach Coordinator.
If you’re a former member of the Partnership or a local real estate salesperson, you may have heard –or be hearing – from Chris, as he’s developing both the membership roster and the available commercial real estate section of the Partnership’s website.
“For a business to expand or start up, they’re looking for new locations,” he explains. “The original
website had just eight [available locations].”
With the region poised to rise again as a tourism destination, Chris and his Partnership colleagues see a lot of potential in both identifying developable properties and wooing back former members.
“I’m interested in being part of the resurgence of Sullivan County,” says the Le Moyne College alumnus, having earned a bachelor’s in marketing and analytics there.
“I like networking and connecting with companies,” he adds, intent on gaining his master’s degree, as well. “It’s an interesting field.”
Chris can be reached at 845-794-1110 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
