Tri-Ed Promotes Mulberry to Director of Business Retention
The Northern Kentucky Tri-County Economic Development Corporation (Tri-ED) announced Thursday that Angie Mulberry has been promoted to director, business retention.
Mulberry leads the economic development organization's services for existing companies in Northern Kentucky, and is responsible for outreach to communities in Boone, Campbell, and Kenton counties and partners with them in meeting with companies.
“Angie’s role is critical to supporting the progress and success of our primary industry companies by providing them with professional services, data and connections,” said Kimberly Rossetti, vice president of economic development. “Tri-ED is here to help our major businesses and we have a talented staff that can help minimize the risk businesses face by providing data, research and services to propel expansion and investment.”
“We want companies who are located in Northern Kentucky to know that our business retention program is a resource available to help support their business needs,” Mulberry said. “I appreciate the opportunity to lead our outreach to companies in the region and really enjoy learning about all the great businesses we have here.”
“Over the years, Mazak has thrived in the Northern Kentucky business community. 2020 marked another year that Mazak is grateful to partners, Tri-ED and the NKY Chamber, for their ongoing support to provide programs that contribute to and help sustain our place in the community,” said Dan Janka, President, Mazak Corporation. A long-term investor in Northern Kentucky, Mazak is a leader in the design and manufacture of productive machine tool solutions. In 2020, Mazak invested $15 million to expand its Spindle Rebuild Department on its manufacturing campus in Florence, Kentucky.
Tri-ED’s business retention program provides businesses a single point of contact for a wide range of assistance opportunities for expansion and immediate operations, for identifying potential tax incentives and workforce grants, for recruiting workforce, and for making connections with regional partners, a news release said.
In October 2019, Mulberry was named manager, business retention & expansion. She joined Tri-ED in January 2019 as project manager. Mulberry graduated from Northern Kentucky University with a bachelor’s degree in communications and a minor in economics.
