In this role, Brink will help keep the community informed about City programs and initiatives, ranging from construction updates, to events and community outreach. Brink also will execute the strategies and efforts outlined by the City’s outreach and engagement plans.

“We are delighted to have Gordon as a part of our team,” said Joni Kirk, City of Mill Creek director of communications and marketing. “Gordon brings passion and energy to his work that will strengthen our team as we build out the City’s marketing and tourism functions.”

Brink earned a master’s in business administration and a bachelor’s degree in strategic communications from Seattle University. With almost 10 years of marketing and communication experience, Brink is excited to take on this opportunity.

“As a new resident of the Mill Creek area, I am very excited to learn more about the area and get to know more of my neighbors in the process,” said Brink. “I figure there really is no better way to do that then to work for the City I call home.”

Brink previously worked with an international food sourcing company to deploy international social media strategy to all of its global entities, managed external relationships and engaged prospective customers at trade shows. Recently, he worked for a local winery setting up their new tasting room and exploring the world of viticulture.

Among other talents, he is a great first-base softball player, and enjoys exploring wine country and tasting along the way.
