Corsicana Main Street director resigns

Corsicana — The Corsicana Main Street Director, Steve Dieterichs, 44, is leaving the city in April to go to work for the City of Granbury as marketing and communications director.

Dieterichs has worked for the City of Corsicana for five years. He started out working as the tourism and promotions coordinator, then became the Main Street Director.

Dieterichs is the second city department director to quit in two weeks. Last week, the city’s library director, Chad Freeze, resigned to go work for Navarro College.

“It was just really a good opportunity that arose for me,” Dieterichs said Monday. “It’s a bit of a shift from downtown development, it’s more of a tourism focus. The job description is marketing and communications, but it’s 90 percent tourism related.

“It’s a big step up professionally,” he added. In addition to a large marketing budget, the job will also encompass responsibilities for the city’s new conference center.

Dieterichs celebrated his five year anniversary with the city on January 25. Prior to going to work for the city he did some marketing and taught Spanish at the high school, and did some freelance writing for the Navarro County Times.

His wife, Gina Dieterichs, works for VOICE, but she’ll continue in her position until they’ve sold their house and can be reunited, Dieterichs said.

“He has brought many events and activities to the Downtown District during his time with the City and he will be greatly missed,” according to a release from the city.
