RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. — Winston Bowden, program manager at the Council for Entrepreneurial Development, is stepping down.

Bowden is joining Cassell Design, a creative design agency based in Durham, in a business development position.

“It was a very difficult decision to leave CED, but I am excited to start a new chapter in my life with Cassell,” Bowden wrote in an email. “I will also still be heavily involved with CED as Cassell has been a strong partner of CED for many years. I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Cassell’s staff during my time at CED and I’m looking forward to becoming a member of the team.”
