Sullivan Is Exec Dir Overton Park Conservancy
By Bill Dries
Tina Sullivan is the new executive director of the Overton Park Conservancy effective May 1.
Sullivan was recommended by a search committee and the recommendation was approved by the conservancy board.
Sullivan, a certified grants manager who has been a conservancy volunteer, is the first permanent director of the nonprofit group which was formed last year.
Sullivan, who is pursuing a Masters Degree in public administration at the University of Memphis, worked for the San Diego Unified Port District managing a grants portfolio.
The conservancy maintains and operates Overton Park for the city under the terms of a 10-year contract approved by the Memphis City Council late last year. Under terms of the contract, the conservancy has raised private funding for the park.
