Westchester County Executive George Latimer Announces Appointment of Bridget Gibbons as Director of the Office of Economic Development

On behalf of the Business Council of Westchester, I would like to congratulate Bridget Gibbons on her appointment as Director of the Westchester County Office of Economic Development.

Bridget has served as Deputy Director since County Executive George Latimer took office in January. At the same time, she has also led both the Westchester County Industrial Development Agency (IDA) and the Westchester County Local Development Corporation (LDC). In these roles, she has made successful outreach to the business and not-for-profit communities and has demonstrated a keen vision of what it takes to attract and retain businesses to Westchester County.

As Westchester County’s largest and most prestigious businesses membership organization representing more than 1,000 members, The Business Council of Westchester commends the County Executive for his selection of an individual with a strong local knowledge base and the ability to address economic issues within Westchester and beyond. And of course, our doors here are always open!

Bridget has served as co-chair of the BCW’s Westchester Business EXPO, the largest and most influential business-to-business trade show in the Hudson Valley.

Prior to joining the Latimer administration, she was founder and owner of Gibbons Digital Consultants, a digital marketing agency. After nine years, her company was acquired by a larger marketing agency in White Plains. Prior to launching her digital business, Gibbons spent 15 years as a Senior Consultant and Project Manager for Towers Watson, a global human resources and benefits consulting firm, where she managed large, multi-national project teams to implement complex, web-based systems. Her clients included JPMorgan Chase, IBM, Molson Coors and Accenture.

Gibbons, a resident of Bronxville, holds a Bachelor’s Degree in International Studies from American University in Washington, DC, and certificates in computer technology from Columbia University and in Social Media from New York University.

I am confident Bridget will continue the good work she’s been doing since she joined the office in January, drawing upon her extensive knowledge and experience in Westchester. I know I join with our BCW membership in wishing Bridget all the best for continued success.
