Snohomish County Council vice chair Terry Ryan has unanimously been elected president of the Puget Sound Regional Council economic development board.

The regional board is the federally designated economic development district for the central Puget Sound region covering King, Kitsap, Pierce and Snohomish counties. Its members include representatives from private business, local governments, tribes and trade organizations. The region’s economic development strategy is produced at PSRC. It identifies the leading drivers of the region’s economy and the near-term actions that will sustain job growth and global competitiveness, according to a press release.

“We’re grateful for council member Ryan’s leadership on economic development throughout the region,” PSRC executive director Josh Brown said. “We’re partnering to secure development and the next generation Boeing jet, to boost the region’s developing space sector and grow good jobs throughout the region. These are exciting times.”

Ryan also serves on the board of trustees for the Economic Alliance of Snohomish County, PSRC executive, transportation and growth management boards and the Community Transit board of directors. His term as president will run through the 2018-19 biennium.

“I am very honored by the appointment,” Ryan said. “I look forward to working with regional leaders to bring more companies and jobs to Snohomish County and the Puget Sound area.”
