The Noblesville Economic Development team has welcomed Maranda Taylor as its new economic development manager. Taylor began working for the city last week.

“Telling Noblesville’s story as a viable location for economic activity is part of our proactive strategy. Maranda brings valuable experience and relationships and will lead our intentional marketing and business attraction efforts as we continue to elevate Noblesville,” Economic Development Director Andrew Murray said.

Filling a new position in the city, Taylor’s time will be focused on attracting the right companies and partners to Noblesville; extensive relationship building; and supporting existing businesses in Noblesville. Taylor earned her undergraduate degree in communications from IUPUI. She has a background in real estate with a focus on construction and development projects in and around Central Indiana.

“I’m very excited to serve the City of Noblesville on the economic development team. We have a group of extremely talented and dedicated leaders who truly care about our city, its businesses, and most importantly the people,” said Taylor. “I’m excited about the road ahead and what’s to come next in our great city. I look forward to using my experience in the commercial development and construction sectors toward growing our city and our relationships.”

Taylor and her husband, Daniel, and their two children live in Noblesville and enjoy boating and spending time outdoors on Morse Reservoir. Workforce and Economic Development is one of Mayor Chris Jensen’s policy pillars and priority areas of focus. Noblesville has shifted efforts to focus business attraction in the medical technology, life sciences and manufacturing sectors that will deliver quality mid and high wage jobs. The city’s comprehensive workforce and economic development strategies feature ongoing communication and collaboration with employers, educators, and other community partners to align business recruitment and retention plans with training and workforce pipeline development efforts.
