Carrie Wells has been named deputy director of the New Mexico Film Office, Alicia J. Keyes, Economic Development Department cabinet secretary, announced Tuesday.

Wells worked in the Albuquerque Film Office, a division of the city of Albuquerque Economic Development unit, for 14 years before moving to the state Economic Development Department in March 2019, where she served as Special Projects Coordinator, according to an EDD news release.

But with changes at the Film Office, Keyes said her knowledge and attention to detail were needed there, and Wells was transferred to the office on an interim basis over the summer.

“The New Mexico Film Office is reorganizing to be more accountable with its data,” Keyes said. “After working with Carrie at the Albuquerque Film Office and bringing her over to EDD, I know she is the right person to get the job done so we can better serve taxpayers and the Legislature.”

Wells has received awards for service from former Albuquerque Mayors Martin Chavez and Richard Berry, as well as Police Chief Gordon Eden. During her tenure at the Albuquerque Film Office, the office received the Location Managers Guild Award for Best Film Office in the world and was named one of the “Top Ten Places to Live and Work as a Moviemaker” by MovieMaker magazine almost every year of the 14 she served there.
