Dorothee Nygren joined the Greater Phoenix Economic Council in 2016 and currently serves as the Office Administrator. As the first point of contact for all GPEC visitors, Dorothee is responsible for a welcoming and warm first impression.
Prior to GPEC, Dorothee worked at Phoenix Center for the Arts where she developed a passion for Phoenix and sought to be a part of its progress. With a Bachelor of Art and a Minor in General Business from Iowa State University, Dorothee brings a deep understanding of the influence art has in a community. She is a member of The Avant Garde on Second Street (a young professionals’ group), and a volunteer at the Phoenix Art Museum. As she is new to the area, Dorothee can be found immersing herself in the local culture and becoming more familiar with the community and all that it offers.
