The Economic Development Operating Committee has hired Michelle Bezditny as the new Director of Economic Development for Steinbach.
“Michelle has demonstrated exceptional leadership and professionalism in leading the business operations at the Steinbach Chamber of Commerce and Eastman Immigrant Services for the last 5 years,” says Christine Beaumont, Chamber President. “She has played an integral role in the economic development pilot project leading up to and since its launch.”
Beaumont says Bezditny has the skills and experience necessary for this position.
“Michelle is a highly self-motivated, organized individual and passionate about our community,” says Beaumont. “She has strong communication and inter-personal skills. She has relationships with business owners and key stakeholders within and outside of our community, including municipal and provincial leaders and decision-makers.”
Bezditny has been part of every aspect of the economic development initiative to date, Beaumont adds.
“And this will allow her to get right to task and hit the ground running,” she says.
This means Bezditny will be leaving her position as Executive Director for the Steinbach Chamber of Commerce. Beaumont says the search will soon begin to fill that position.
