LUTZ, FLORIDA (December 11, 2014) – The Pasco Economic Development Council is pleased to welcome new Marketing/Communications Coordinator, Jennifer Lachtara. Lachtara joined the team in early November, shortly after the departure of Summer Martin.
“Pasco County is rife with the potential for growth,” says Lachtara, “and I believe the work Pasco EDC does to foster development in Pasco can also bolster growth in the Tampa Bay Region as a whole. That is the main reason I was eager to join the team.”
Lachtara’s career spans over 15 years in a variety of roles throughout the marketing and advertising industry in both agency and private company settings. She holds degrees in Advertising and Public Relations as well as Fine Arts from the University of Central Florida and will bring a broad range of experience from marketing planning and strategy to graphic design and copywriting to her new role. She was previously the Design Principal/Junior Partner for Creative Ideas Agency, a boutique advertising and public relations agency in Tampa.
“Filling this opening with such a talented candidate is a great relief for all of us on the Pasco EDC team,” said John Hagen, President/CEO, Pasco Economic Development Council. “It’s critical right now that we not skip a beat in the execution of our marketing programs. Jennifer Lachtara has that “it” factor, and as soon as we interviewed her, it was evident that she was the one.” Hagen noted that over two hundred people had applied for the job.
With a portion of Penny for Pasco Funds designated for economic development and job creation over the next ten years, the Pasco Economic Development Council is looking forward to working with Pasco County to help guide the economic development programming over the coming decade. Increased visibility and marketing is a top priority, and Lachtara is expected to play a leadership role in this arena.
