Dear friends of Incite, Inc.,
I’m delighted to announce that Kim Parker-Llerenas has been appointed as the next Executive Director of Incite, Inc. Kim will join the organization on July 31.
The board selected Kim following a rigorous search process that attracted a pool of highly talented candidates. Kim distinguished herself as an accomplished and collaborative leader, who will bring a strong track record in workforce development, partnership building, and organizational development to this new role – and a passion for Incite’s mission in our four-county region.
Over the course of her career, Kim has led a variety of public and nonprofit organizations. Currently, she is the Chief of Staff of the Department of Education’s Early Learning Division. Earlier, she served as the Assistant Director for Business and Employment Services of the Oregon Employment Department (OED). In that capacity, she led more than 400 staff charged with serving Oregonians at over 36 Worksource offices across the State. Prior to joining the State, Kim served as Executive Director of the Workforce Investment Council of Clackamas County. While in that position, she also served as Executive Director of the Clackamas County Business Alliance. Earlier in her career, Kim was the Executive Director of the North Willamette Valley Habitat for Humanity and, prior to that, served as the Director of Community Action Head Start of the Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency. Kim holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Communications from Willamette University.
“I am honored and excited to begin work as the Executive Director of Incite,“ Kim says. “The workforce field is dynamic and continues to evolve and change. I look forward to working collaboratively with partners to advance workforce solutions that meet our region’s needs.”
Kim has the experience, energy, and commitment needed to successfully lead Incite into the future – we are thrilled to have her join our team!
On behalf of the Board and staff of the Incite, thank you for your continued support.
President, Incite, Inc.
