Lebanon native Amy Kopecky will be the new manager of the Lebanon Business Improvement District (BID), the Lebanon Foundation announced today.
Kopecky replaces real estate professional John Tice who stepped in as interim director in March 2018 following the resignation of Kelly Withum.
“I want to thank John Tice for his service as interim director,” said Mike Kuhn, vice president of the Lebanon Foundation board of directors, in the release.
“John is passionate about the Lebanon community and has done an excellent job. We hope he will continue to work with us in a new role as part of our transition to help sustain some of the momentum he has created through events and promotional activities.”
The BID operates as a public-private partnership funded through an annual assessment on commercial buildings in the district. The BID encompasses Cumberland Street from 4th to 11th, as well as portions of Chestnut and Willow Streets.
The Lebanon Foundation serves as the Neighborhood Improvement District Management Association for the BID.
Kopecky previously served as a client relationship manager for Heartland Wealth Advisors in Lebanon. She is a graduate of Lebanon Catholic High School and Immaculata University, and serves on the board of directors for the Lebanon Community Theatre.
Dinny Kinloch chaired the recruitment commitment for the BID and said of Kopecky that her strong business background and demonstrated commitment to the community gave her the edge over other candidates. “We are looking forward to working with Amy as she leads Downtown Lebanon in continuing growth and improvement,” he said in the release.
Kopecky begins Monday.
