Sean Moore Promoted to Manager of the Center for Business & Innovation


The Thurston EDC’s Center for Business & Innovation (CB&I) has named Sean Moore, Ph.D. as its new Manager. Previously Moore was the Program Director for the CB&I’s Washington Center for Women in Business (WCWB), a position he has held since November 2019.

Moore earned his doctorate in Organizational Change and Development from Southern Cross University, New South Wales Australia. He earned a master’s degree in Organizational Change from Hawaii Pacific University, Honolulu, Hawaii.

Moore’s strong background as a former lecturer and instructor at Kapi’olani Community College in business management, marketing, and organizational behavior, coupled with his experiences in retail operations will provide excellent background and topical knowledge to manage the technical resources and programs of the CB&I.

 “I am excited for Sean to begin his role as our CB&I Manager. He has a strong passion for this work and his vision for building and supporting a vibrant entrepreneurial network for our region,” said Michael Cade, Executive Director.
