Meet the Team
Andrea Marcoccio - Executive Director, BCEDC

Andrea Marcoccio joined our team as Executive Director of Bonner County Economic Development Corporation in the fall of 2018.

Andrea is also the founder, co-owner and general manager of Matchwood Brewing Company, Sandpoint's neighborhood brewery and eatery featuring a new 10-barrel capacity state-of-the-art brewing facility, taproom and fast casual dining experience in a 5,000 square foot renovated historic building. As an entrepreneur, small business owner and employer, Andrea learned first-hand the value of the Bonner County EDC as she worked alongside the team throughout the planning, research, development and start-up phase for Matchwood Brewing.

For the past decade, Andrea has worked across the public, private and nonprofit sectors in a variety of roles, including as President of her own consulting company offering strategic planning and funds development support to both for and not-for profit entities; Executive Director of a statewide organization with 140 employees; and Director of Capacity Building for a national non-profit responsible for a programmatic budget of approximately $1 million reaching 20 state-based organizations.

Andrea's love for a healthy, prosperous and thriving community drives her passion to work alongside current and future business leaders throughout Bonner County. She works to provide support to new entrepreneurs, identify innovative opportunities for current businesses, and leverage local and statewide relationships and resources – all with the goal to scale, retain and grow the business community while preserving Bonner County's quality of life for generations to come.
