EDB welcomes Tamsin Bell, Vice President of Business Development
The EDB is pleased to welcome Tamsin Bell, new Vice President of Business Development. She will begin her new role February 1.
A certified economic developer with several years of experience, Bell comes to the EDB from the Economic Development Alliance of Skagit County (EDASC). During her two and a half years as EDASC’s Economic Development Manager, Bell supported multiple new businesses in their relocation to the county, which brought hundreds of new jobs in the maritime, clean technology, manufacturing and aerospace sectors. She also oversaw grant programs, spearheaded virtual job fairs, coordinated business training and development programs, and fostered community partnerships.
Bell also garnered some impressive accolades during her tenure with the EDASC. In 2021, she was named Emerging Professional of the Year by the Washington Economic Development Association. In 2020, she was the Skagit Women’s Alliance and NetworkWoman of the Year.
“Tasmin has done a remarkable job at the Economic Development Alliance of Skagit County,” said EDB President Bruce Kendall. “She will be a stellar addition to our team, and we’re thrilled to welcome her aboard.”
In her new role, Bell will lead the EDB’s innovative Cluster Acceleration Team program. She will also oversee the Major Employers List, manage Industrial Development Revenue Bonds (IDRB) funding and help market Tacoma-Pierce County to the world.
Bell replaces Jacqueline Moffo, who recently relocated to Georgia to be closer to family. The EDB wishes Moffo the best of luck in her new position as Economic Development Manager for the city of Tucker, Georgia, located near Atlanta.
