Julie Pierce Onos, the Town of Acton’s new Economic Development Director in the Town Manager’s Office, addressed our Club Meeting on April 6. Her task is to maintain Acton as business-friendly, with economic-development initiatives designed to create and stimulate an environment in which businesses succeed.



Julie holds a B.A. in Sociology from Yale University, where she was a Mellon Research Fellow. She continued her studies with an MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management in Organizational Finance.

Julie’s career started in Connecticut, where she worked on a research study analyzing the social and economic impacts of addiction on individuals, families, and communities. She then moved to Massachusetts and began working for the Social Security Administration, where she held a variety of roles including assisting the public with their retirement and disability claims, building public-private partnerships, creating and deploying training, and auditing local field offices.

After many years with SSA, Julie moved on to Middlesex Community College, where she founded their STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) internship program. This work involved recruiting and supporting employers, interviewing matching students with employers, and creating the foundational policies and procedures to sustain the program for years to come.
