Office Hours

Dickinson takes Sterling post

Marty Dickinson is leaving the Downtown Spokane Partnership to become senior vice president and corporate marketing communications executive at Sterling Savings Bank.

Her last day at the DSP, where she has been president for six years, will be July 1.

Marla Nunbeg was named interim president by the DSP executive board of directors.

Dickinson said the opportunity to work for Sterling, a Fortune 500 company, was one she could not pass up, but added that the decision was a difficult one.

“There are a few lucky individuals that have the chance to have a job they love so much that it is really not a job at all,” she said.

Dickinson said she takes particular satisfaction in development downtown, and in the University District.

DSP Board Chairman Mark Aden noted Dickinson's efforts to find new housing for low-income residents displaced by redevelopment at the Madison and Otis apartments.
