The city of Woodstock has named Sylvia Breitbart as its program manager for the Office of Economic Development following an internal search. She assumed the new position on Thursday.

Breitbart has worked for the city since June serving as the citizen request for action coordinator and in a customer service role in the utility billing office.

Prior to coming to Woodstock, she served in office management and sales management roles for both locally owned companies and national companies such as AT&T.

“Sylvia was identified as a candidate for this position early on in the search, and I am confident that the relationships she already has established across all city departments and her customer service and sales background will allow her to hit the ground running for our office and the IN WDSTK organization,” said Brian Stockton, director of economic development.

In addition to administering the city’s economic development strategy, the program manager role serves as the secretary for the Downtown Development Authority as well as chief operations officer for IN WDSTK, an investor, led 501©6 organization charged with business development and destination marketing within the city.
