The August meeting of High Tech Consortium (HTC) of Southern New Mexico will be on the 22nd of August [Wednesday], from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Arrowhead Center. The Arrowhead Center is located at 3655 Research Drive, Genesis Center, Building C on the campus of New Mexico State University.
This month’s speaker is Dr. Griselda Martinez, Deputy Director, Economic Development Department, City of Las Cruces. Dr. Martinez will provide an overview of the newly created Economic Department, the strategic plan, and initiatives taking place department-wide, and more detailed related to the Las Cruces International Airport and Sustainability. The department has gone through an intense strategic planning process, in which customer-based metrics have been defined for the upcoming four years. Dr. Griselda’s responsibilities include the implementation of strategies to meet these metrics for the two sections of her primary responsibility.
Dr. Martinez’ prior experience includes working in the private sector work in a binational manufacturing company with operations in both El Paso [U.S.] and Ciudad Juarez [Mexico]. Upon her arrival to Las Cruces, she joined the Arrowhead’s team at New Mexico State University, where her roles included research on economic matters and linked to her doctorate program in Economic Development. Additionally, she directed efforts for both business and technical assistance to a wide variety of businesses in the region and in the state of New Mexico through the New Mexico Small Business Assistance (NMSBA) program. Leveraging upon her multicultural and bilingual background, Griselda also directed the efforts for entrepreneurial programs in Mexico, including work with the National Autonomous University of Mexico [Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México] (UNAM), and the National Polytechnic Institute [Instituto Politécnico Nacional] (IPN), in Mexico City.
