CAMDEN — Former Camden Mayor and New Jersey State Senator Dana Redd was named the new president and CEO of Camden Community Partnership last month, according to a report from recently from ROI-NJ.com.
Redd, who served as Camden mayor from 2010 to 2018 and the New Jersey Senate from 2008 to 2010, replaces Kris Kolluri, who left the organization, formerly known as the Coopers Ferry Partnership, in May.
The Camden Community Partnership was founded in 1984 as a private, nonprofit corporation dedicated to planning and implementing high-quality urban redevelopment projects to revitalize the City of Camden.
“I am honored for the opportunity to lead the work that Camden Community Partnership
proudly does across the city of Camden,” Redd said, according to ROI-NJ.com.
“I am excited and ready to engage and partner with Camden’s elected and community leaders, residents, businesses, corporations, nonprofit partners and others to work together to build upon the transformation the city is experiencing towards inclusive prosperity.”
Redd had served as CEO of the Rowan University/Rutgers-Camden Board of Governors, where she was responsible for overseeing board operations and the construction of a 95,000-square-foot Joint Health Sciences Center.
She was charged with developing programmatic and policy initiatives which reflect the Board’s mission and overarching objectives of education, economic development and civic engagement.
