Meet David Preziosi, Preservation Dallas' New Executive Director
Katherine Seale officially ended her five-year tenure as executive director of Preservation Dallas early this year, but she didn't stop working. Instead, she's been hanging around as a volunteer until the nonprofit found a new leader.
That just happened. The nonprofit announced in a press release today. that David Preziosi, executive director of the Mississippi Hertage Trust since 2002 and a graduate of Texas A&M, will take the helm on Sept. 4.
"David has a proven track-record as a champion for historic preservation and as an administrator," board president Steve Whitcraft said in the release.. "He brings a strong commitment to advocacy for preservation issues and experience working on programs at the local, state, and national level. He is a leader in the preservation field who will continue to foster the positive role that Preservation Dallas plays in the city and throughout Texas in meaningful ways."
I have an email in to Preziosi, and I'll update when I hear back. In the meantime, if you want to hear from the man himself and have 50 minutes to spare, you can watch him deliver a talk about MHT's preservation efforts post-Hurricane Katrina after the jump.
