“We are excited to have Katie join our team to expand our economic development capabilities in Brazoria County,” said Patti Worfe, President & CEO. “Her background in marketing will serve us well and we look forward to great things from her!”
Britt comes with almost 30 years of marketing experience and her work with the Wichita Falls Economic Development Corporation through the Wichita Falls Chamber showcased her ability to market a community and elevate the brand. She obtained the Professional Community and Economic Development (PCED) credentials in early 2022 at the Community Development Institute at Lonestar College.

“I would put the storytelling we did in Wichita Falls up against anyone in the state, possibly the country. Katie led those efforts and I give her tremendous credit for our success. I’m looking forward to seeing what she accomplishes with the team in Brazoria County,” stated Britt’s former employer Henry Florsheim.
She is ready to get to work for Brazoria County.
“It’s exciting to continue doing economic development, marketing, and community development in South Texas. Texas is doing a lot of amazing work growing the economy while maintaining high standards which keep the Lone Star State at the top of rankings. I am looking forward to building the Brazoria County brand while continuing the work of The Alliance attracting high-wage jobs and supporting local industries,” Britt said.
