Sacramentos Midtown Business Association found a new executive director in nearby San Joaquin County.
MBA said today that the job goes to Emily Baime, most recently CEO and director of economic development for the Downtown Stockton Alliance.
In Stockton, she managed a staff of 25 and a $1.2 million budget, and she managed to increase event/advertising/service revenue by 35 percent annually.
From 2003-07, Baime was development director for the El Cajon Community Development Corp., a nonprofit focused on community development and revitalization.
MBAs executive director serves as a community advocate, manager and liaison with midtown property and business owners.
She also will work closely with MBAs board of directors.
Baime succeeds Elizabeth Studebaker, who announced earlier this year that she was stepping down to become the new business improvement district advocate in the city of San Diegos Economic Development Department.
