Marlborough resident named among Banker & Tradesman’s Women of FIRE

Marlborough Economic Development Corporation executive director Meredith Harris has become the first leader of an economic development organization to be named among Banker & Tradesman’s Women of FIRE. The 2018 Women of FIRE awards recognize a list of 17 female innovators from around Massachusetts who are making a significant impact on the finance, insurance and real estate industries. Harris was chosen for her successful leadership of MEDC, where, alongside the Marlborough City Council and the MEDC Board of Directors, she has been working with commercial real estate professionals, developers and tenants to create and implemented a series of programs that have helped attract a number of companies to Marlborough, including Whole Foods Market, Allegro Microsystems and the China Boston Innovation Center. As a result, Marlborough’s unemployment rate has fallen to a 15-year-low and commercial vacancy rate has dropped to a five-year-low, creating positive net absorption and more than 1,000 new jobs. Harris has also been instrumental to the implementation and success of the Marlborough Economic Development Toolbox — a set of financial incentives programs, including a revolving loan fund, aimed at helping small businesses set up and grow in the city. Since its launch, the toolbox has helped eight successful Marlborough companies secure gap financing and grant funding to launch or grow their businesses, create jobs and fill commercial space. Harris will be honored during the eighth annual Women of FIRE awards event, which will celebrate the best and the brightest women in their industries on July 19 at the Courtyard by Marriott Boston Downtown.
