If this was the view from my office I’d never retire.

Speaking of Pike Place Market, just got word the market’s Preservation Development Authority is seeking a new leader. The current executive director, Carol Binder, announced late Tuesday she will be stepping down from the position June 30, 2010.

“The time has come for me to change my role at the Market from Executive Director to shopper and supporter,” Binder said in a press release. "I have a grandchild I’d like to spend more time with and also plan to focus on a couple of real estate development projects with my family.”

Once organized, a search committee will immediately start vetting possible replacements.
