The Greater Conroe Economic Development Council (GCEDC) has added Ranee Banks in the role of Marketing Coordinator. Banks will help oversee the organization’s efforts in promoting and branding Conroe as a premier destination to do business.

Banks joins the GCEDC with vast experience in the field of marketing. Employed most recently as an independent contractor for marketing and business development, Banks assisted clients in education, oil and gas, and business services industries, among others. Her talents were used to maintain and build relationships between clients and their customers, provide marketing plans and promotion materials, maintain social media accounts, and complete other assignments that promoted her clients’ businesses.

“Ranee will bring her expertise to the organization at a time when there is great growth in Conroe, plenty to market, and a great story to tell about Conroe,” said Danielle Scheiner, Interim Director of the Greater Conroe Economic Development Council. “Her vast experiences in marketing and building relationships will be a great asset to our office and the Conroe community. We look forward to watching her display her talents in marketing the Conroe story.”

Banks holds three degrees, with a Master of Science in Marketing from Texas A&M University-Commerce, a Bachelor of Arts in English-Creative Writing from Texas A&M University-College Station, and an Associate of Arts in English from Blinn College. In addition to her education, Banks was trained in the Reynolds & Reynolds marketing analyst program.

Along with her training at Reynolds & Reynolds, Banks was employed by the company as a remote call analyst, where she assessed and maintained customer assistance. Prior to her time with Reynolds & Reynolds, Banks served as Director for Blinn College’s Surgical Technology Program in Bryan. Among the many duties of that role, she marketed and maintained the program’s brand and image and promoted the program to prospective students. Banks combined her experience as a Surgical Technologist and her marketing aptitude to succeed in that role.

“I am thrilled for the opportunity to join the Greater Conroe Economic Development Council,” said Banks. “Conroe and its economic vitality is a great story to tell. I look forward to embracing this new challenge and continuing the momentum that the GCEDC has built.”
