Vice President of Marketing & Sales Strategy

Position Overview:

The Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance (LVGEA) is a 501(c)6 economic development organization serving Clark County, Nevada; it is one of eight regional development authorities designated by the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. The LVGEA was created in 2012, although its economic development roots trace back to 1956. Since inception, the organization’s principal mission has been to expand and diversify the local economy. During the past 60 years, the LVGEA has worked with thousands of local businesses seeking to grow and new businesses seeking to relocate or expand into Southern Nevada, and in doing so, helped solidify the region’s place among the most dynamic economies in the nation.

Today, the organization’s mission is largely unchanged. Despite whatever cyclical or structural challenges the community may be confronting, it is the job of the LVGEA to grow and diversify the economy. This means attracting and retaining businesses that expand the economy by: (i) bringing capital into the community through selling goods or services regionally, nationally, or internationally; or (ii) stopping the leakage of capital out of the community by attracting new businesses that provide goods or services that local businesses have historically needed to go out of market to procure. It runs the gamut from helping entrepreneurs with an innovative concept start a new business to assisting a Fortune 500 company relocate to Southern Nevada. Effective economic development is thoughtful and intentional; it is also opportunistic. The LVGEA’s primary purpose is to thoughtfully, diligently, and creatively find ways to convert opportunities into tangible outcomes that strengthen the local economy.

The Vice President of Marketing and Sales Strategy is responsible for researching, developing, and communicating strategic marketing plans to meet the LVGEA’s goals, which include increasing brand awareness and exposure of Southern Nevada to audiences as the place to do business.
