EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR ~ MARY DOUGHERTY
It is an honor and a privilege to serve as the Executive Director of the Gulf Coast Builders Xchange. Thank you for placing your confidence in me to represent you and serve the Board of Directors and the Membership of this fine organization as we strive to build on past successes and move into the future. While our businesses, families and community face many challenges as we rebuild after the "great recession", it is imperative that we stay strong and focused on the advocacy efforts that will help us weather the current economic storm. We must develop new and innovative ideas to make our businesses stronger and prepare for the future.
We must work with our elected officials to ensure a business friendly environment. We must engage and educate our elected leaders, so they understand that excessive regulations and exaction place unnecessary burdens on our businesses. We must work with government officials at the local, State and Federal levels to create a strong regional economy that will continue to thrive for many years into the future.
To face these challenges and ensure the success of our efforts, we need you to continue to support the Gulf Coast Builders Xchange and our members. Now more than ever, members must commit to work with members to strengthen member businesses and our local economy. We must further strengthen the Xchange by increasing our membership and thereby strengthening our voice for our industry and our issues.
Director of MEMBERSHIP AND EVENTS ~ ALBANI Hogan
Originally from Ft. Myers, Florida, after attending Florida State University and graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and a Minor in Communications, the opportunity to work at GCBX led me to Sarasota and I have been a part of this community for the past 9 years.
I enjoy getting to know our wide array of members at all of our events and committee meetings and helping to facilitate Members doing Business with Members!
MEMBERSHIP EXPERIENCE COORDINATOR ~ KENDALL WILLIAMS
After graduating from high school and finishing my senior year at a local trade school I got an amazing opportunity to work for the Gulf Coast Builders Exchange! I am beyond excited to expand my knowledge in a space where I have the ability to grow and become who I want to be with the great guidance of two of my very intellectual peers.
With this opportunity, I have been given the chance to put my skills to the test and learn a whole new side to business and I am very excited to grow and build relationships with all the great members and businesses in our community!
I want to make sure your experience within our organization meets more than your expectations and that all of our members lean on each other, and us, to strengthen our community as a whole.
