Evette Beckett-Tuggle, head of the Business Development Unit for Nassau County’s Office of Economic Development and acting director of the county’s Office of Minority Affairs, has resigned to head a not-for-profit agency headquartered in Charlotte, N.C.
Beckett-Tuggle is the new president and chief executive of the Carolinas Minority Suppliers Development Council, which serves the two states. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Tufts University and an MBA in marketing and finance from Columbia University.
In Nassau, Beckett-Tuggle earned $130,685, but she would not comment on her salary with the council.
She said she is “hoping to increase the participation of minority suppliers in the economic base of North and South Carolina.”
