Elizabeth "Betsy" McIntyre

Director, Tristate Energy and Advanced Manufacturing (TEAM) Consortium


As Director of the TEAM Consortium Elizabeth “Betsy” McIntyre is responsible for coordinating the activities of a diverse set of public and private entities including institutions of higher education, workforce boards, industry partners, economic development entities and state officials.

The goal of Consortium is to align systems and programming in a way that ensures an adequate supply of properly skilled workers for the wave of economic activity that is imminent in the region. Part of that strategy is to create clear and accessible pathways to jobs in the energy and manufacturing sectors throughout the targeted 27-county region in southeast Ohio, northern West Virginia and southwestern Pennsylvania.

Prior to this position, Ms. McIntyre was Executive Director of Midland Development Corporation (MDC), a nonprofit economic development entity whose goal is help build the capacity of Beaver County municipalities to revitalize their communities. In this role Betsy helped implement Midland, PA’s 2013-18 Economic Development Plan, which she had facilitated and authored.

In 2017, she served as a loaned executive to the Borough of Midland as Secretary/Treasurer during a transition in municipal leadership. Before returning to southwest PA a few years ago, Ms. McIntyre served as Vice President of Commonwealth Corporation, a $43 million quasi-public state agency in Massachusetts where she was responsible for diversifying the funding base for state-wide workforce development programs, as well as for policy development, communications and program implementation for sector-based industry initiatives.
