McKinstry is pleased to welcome Kim Pearman-Gillman to its Inland Northwest team as Business Development Director. Pearman-Gillman brings more than 26 years of senior leadership experience to bear spanning the private, public, and non-profit sectors. She has over 18 years experience in the energy field. Her diverse business background has included such prominent leadership positions as Executive VP of Marketing for Itron, Inc.; Sr. Vice President of Avista Development, a subsidiary of Avista Corp.; and Economic Development Advisor for the City of Spokane, among others.
Pearman-Gillman had this to say of her new position with McKinstry: "I'm very pleased to be joining such an amazing company that is dedicated to Spokane and the Inland NW's growth. McKinstry and I have many shared values, and this is the company I want to spend my energy on helping grow while continuing to be involved in the long-term sustainable growth of this fantastic community I have called 'home' for the past 20 years. The breath of opportunities at McKinstry to use the various experiences I've had at companies like Avista and Itron, as well as my time with the City of Spokane, is what drew me to them. McKinstry represents an innovative, private concern that cares about the bigger issues: a strong sense of the importance of their team members; commitment to the long-term impacts of their projects on energy use and the environment; attention to sustainable solutions; interest in being a good community member and the desire to grow a responsible business that helps the communities it lives in prosper."
As a loaned executive from Avista, Pearman-Gillman established the Department of Economic Development for the City of Spokane, serving as its first advisor, and spearheaded the development of Spokane's downtown University District at Riverpoint. Her other development projects include the National Preservation Award-winning Steam Plant Square, the Courtyard Office Center as well as chairing the redevelopment of the Davenport Arts District for four years during its recent resurgence.
"Kim truly exemplifies McKinstry's commitment to innovation," says McKinstry CEO Dean Allen. "She joins us with extraordinary experience and a variety of noteworthy and innovative contributions on behalf of the Spokane's civic and business communities.
