Robert Trent accepts position as Nevada County Economic Resource Council Executive Director
We at Sierra Commons are proud of today’s news that Robert Trent has been appointed Executive Director of the Nevada County Economic Resource Council. Robert has held this role at Sierra Commons since we opened our doors in August of 2009. His appointment to the post at the ERC is a validation that Sierra Commons’ ground-up focus on micro-enterprise and small business has become a key building block for economic rejuvenation in Nevada County, as well as a testament to his personal capacity and expertise in economic development.
Robert will continue to serve Sierra Commons as Executive Director in a part-time capacity as he takes up his responsibilities as ERC ED. We’re very happy that our long-time office manager, Kim Albanese, has agreed to assume additional operational responsibilities. We are moving forward with the next Business Ignitor course, starting March 6th, and offering co-working memberships in our beautiful new facility at 792 Searls Avenue in Nevada City.
Sierra Commons is committed to strengthening our community and our local economy. We wish Robert the best as he works towards this goal with the ERC, and are excited to broaden the partnership between the two organizations.
