The City of North Port has selected Vinicia “Vinnie” Mascarenhas as its Economic Development Manager.
Mascarenhas joined the City team in September 2022 as a Marketing and Business Development Specialist. Since December, she had served as the Interim Economic Development Manager. Mascarenhas led the City’s efforts to help local businesses recover from Hurricane Ian and to market North Port’s attractiveness for commercial and industrial development. Her dynamic marketing approach has increased the City’s visibility to site selectors and developers.
“We have a phenomenal leadership team at the City of North Port, and I’m humbled to have been selected for this role,” Mascarenhas said. “With so many transformative projects already in the works across our 104 square miles, from health care expansions to infrastructure improvements and more to come, this is an exciting time for economic development, job creation and the future of North Port.”
Mascarenhas previously served as Marketing Communications Manager for Sarasota-based U.S. Submergent Technologies and was the Communications Manager for Global Tel*Link in Reston, VA.
