WTIA CEO Sigl steps down

Susan Sigl today announced that she’s resigning as head of WTIA, the Washington Technology Industry Association.

Sigl became chief executive of the group in April 2010. Previously she was general partner and co-founder of Seattle’s SeaPoint Ventures, through which she served as interim chief financial officer at several area startups.

The Seattle-based WTIA represents around 800 companies with 100,000 employees across the state.

In a farewell note posted on the WTIA blog, Sigl said she plans to return to the tech industry “after taking some extended time off for the first time in my career.”

Sigl will stay with the group while a successor is recruited and help with the transition.

From her note:

There’s only one place to start with this message: I love Washington’s tech industry.  This is why it’s bittersweet to announce that after three years leading the WTIA, I am stepping down as CEO. Handing off the reins in good times is one of the toughest decisions a leader can make, but it’s from this fortunate place that I am preparing to exit the WTIA.
