“Every day I have the privilege of helping to build our city of the future for businesses and residents.”

Phoenix Community and Economic Development director, Christine Mackay, has served the people of Phoenix since August 2014. She is responsible for leading and fostering an environment where businesses can create and retain jobs, make capital investment and reinvestment in the community, and connect our workforce to employers and training opportunities. During Mackay’s tenure with the city of Phoenix, the department has facilitated the creation of over 63,000 high-value jobs, seen the average wage of those jobs increase from over $30,000 in 2014 to more than $70,000 in 2019, and closed deals with more than $58 billion in capital investment.
