TwispsWorks has named Patrick Law as its new economic development director, overseeing a variety of valley-wide programs for local businesses.
Law is already familiar on the TwispWorks campus as owner of the FORK food truck, which he purchased three years ago. He took on his new role in June.
Law will be responsible for oversight of TwispWorks’ economic programs and advocacy efforts to help boost the valley’s economic and cultural vitality, including business outreach, the Methow Investment Network, Small Business Resiliency Grants, the Methow Made marketing program, and the Methow Valley Goods store on the TwispWorks campus.
According to TwispWorks, Law is a New Hampshire native who attended Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, after which he returned to the Northeast, where he lived in Boston, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. He worked for several nonprofit organizations and completed a year of AmeriCorps, providing weatherization services to low-income residents in rural Vermont.
Law eventually moved to Seattle, where he helped manage two busy farmers markets and two food banks. He moved to the Methow Valley in 2017 and worked for several small businesses before taking over FORK.
At a recent appearance before the Winthrop Chamber of Commerce membership, Law said he intends to be a resource for local business needs.
