Economic development in Flagler County is on a roll, the county’s director of the Department of Economic Opportunity told county commissioners during Monday’s regular meeting. “It’s gone even better than I imagined it would,” said Helga van Eckert.
It was a year ago March 1 that van Eckert moved to the county to take over as executive director of newly formed department.
“We hit the ground running,” van Eckert said of the top priority, marketing, that was outlined during the strategic planning session held shortly after her arrival. “We have a new logo and a new tagline: business to beaches.”
