OED director moves to Alexandria

Brian Surratt, director of the Seattle Office of Economic Development, is resigning after 12 years with the agency and joining Alexandria Real Estate Equities. In a statement, he said, “Alexandria is one of the largest urban developers focused exclusively on collaborative life science and technology spaces in our nation's leading innovation cities. Clearly, I am neither a scientist nor a technologist, but I am excited by the opportunity to help create places for the smartest people in the world to find cures, push new ideas, and transform lives.” Surratt worked on the KeyArena deal with Oak View Group, and community partnerships for the Liberty Bank Building and AfricaTown Plaza. The city named Rebecca Lovell as interim director for the OED.
