WESTBOROUGH – Zach Boughner is heading to Cambridge.
The town’s economic development director will become the strategy manager in that city’s executive office.
Boughner’s last day was June 6.
“It was a very bittersweet decision, and even though this is a great opportunity for me professionally, it has been very hard for me to admit that I’m leaving this community,” said Boughner.
Over the past couple of years, Boughner has introduced several initiatives to help foster economic development, including pop-up shops and outdoor dining guidelines for downtown businesses.
Boughner said he has been “transitioning” ongoing project work to Fred Lonardo, the community development director.
The economic development director is responsible for planning, organizing and implementing economic development initiatives in the town, in accordance with policy initiatives of the Economic Development Committee.
The town has posted the position; a complete description is available via https://www.town.westborough.ma.us/human-resources/pages/employment-opportunities-5.
