A long-time figure in the Downtown Spokane Partnership and University District, Marty Dickinson, is leaving to accept a new position at Sterling Savings Bank.

Dickinson spent six years leading Spokane’s central city advocate organization, and ultimately decided she had to take the opportunity to serve as the Corporate Marketing Communications Executive at one of Spokane’s longstanding businesses.

“I have had the gift of watching downtown Spokane and the University District grow and develop,” Dickinson said. “I am thankful for the time I had to be a part of such a dynamic central city and working with such great people along the way. Spokane is a truly great city with a fantastic downtown and great momentum.”

Her colleagues at Downtown Spokane Partnership said they are sad to see her go, but are proud of her accomplishments during her tenure.

“By focusing on implementation of the strategic Downtown Plan and related development projects we’ve realized more than $3.7 billion dollars in urban investment over the last decade,” Mark Aden, DSP Board Chair said. “Marty also chaired the City of Spokane Housing Taskforce that helped relocate over 100 people from the Madison and Otis Buildings, as well as securing the summer bike patrol program with the Spokane Police Department to keep our neighborhoods safe.”

The Executive Board of Directors has named Marla Nunberg as the interim President during the replacement search.

Nunberg is currently the Vice President, a position she has held since 2007, and has managed the DSP communications and BID operations from that position. She has been with the DSP since 1997.
