Koya Leadership Partners is delighted to have placed Marybeth Campbell as Executive Director of Worcester Community Action Council.
Campbell comes to WCAC from SkillWorks, a public-private partnership aimed at improving workforce development in Massachusetts. SkillWorks helps low-income residents move into family-sustaining jobs while helping employers find and retain skilled employees.
Campbell has 19 years’ experience in public policy, public education and project management in clean energy, education, economic and workforce development. She served as the state’s first cross-secretariat director of education and workforce development, advising Gov. Deval L. Patrick’s administration from 2012 to 2014. She previously served as the state’s first Workforce Development Director at the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center establishing national-leading green jobs programs by working with higher education, vocational schools, labor organizations and community based nonprofits to develop training and workforce capacity that supports the Commonwealth’s growing clean energy industry.
She also served as Public Education Manager for the former Massachusetts Renewable Energy Trust where she oversaw two education initiatives to increase awareness among teachers, students and the public about the benefits of clean energy, and as a senior research analyst for the Massachusetts House of Representatives Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy.
Campbell earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Providence College and attended Suffolk University Law School. A native of Worcester, MA, she looks forward to returning to Worcester to work with the City and area business partners to continue to develop opportunities for area residents as Worcester grows.
