BIDA director leaving for Seattle association

Andie Mackin, executive director of the Bainbridge Island Downtown Association, is leaving the organization to join its counterpart across the Sound.

Mackin will take a job as resourced development manager for the Downtown Seattle Association later this month, according to a news release. She will continue to advise the Bainbridge association as it searches for a new director.

BIDA board President Tim O’Brien said Mackin helped the organization gain recognition as a “model” Main Street Program.

“I cannot be more excited for Andie to open this new chapter in her career,” O’Brien said in the release. “She’s made such a positive impact in fulfilling the mission of our Downtown Association here on Bainbridge, and I know she’ll do very well in the large market of Seattle.”
