Meet the new boss

Friday, October 31, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano

After several months, Preservation Austin has settled on a new executive director, Kate Singleton. In a news release announcing Singleton’s new position, the group explained her background, touting “over 30 years of experience in historic preservation, downtown revitalization and economic and community development.” The statement says: “(Singleton) has served as Chief Preservation Planner for the City of Dallas, Planning Manager for Downtown Dallas, Inc. and State Coordinator of the Arizona Main Street program as well as Main Street Manager in Waxahachie and Grapevine.” Preservation Austin also bid adieu to interim director Angela Reed in that same announcement, noting that she had “decided to pursue other professional opportunities outside of Preservation Austin.” The statement said that although Reed’s last day will be Nov. 5, she will continue to volunteer with the organization.
