BTV Ignite Exec Director Mike Schirling named Secretary of Commerce and Community Development
The BTV Ignite Board wish to extend sincere congratulations to Mike Schirling on his appointment to Secretary of Commerce and Community Development for the State of Vermont, as well as gratitude for his meaningful work on behalf of BTV Ignite. As BTV Ignites Executive Director since September 2015, Mike has been unflinching, engaging and driven in his efforts to begin to lay the groundwork necessary to create a sustainable Tech Ecosystem in Burlington and more broadly in Chittenden County. This is an opportunity that he has come to passionately believe in. We are delighted that he will continue this important work at a state-wide level, which Mike has already identified as a core initiative of Governor-Elect Scott’s administration.
Stephen Barraclough, BTV Ignite Chair
