RECA gets new CEO
Tuesday, April 18, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano
Yesterday, the Real Estate Council of Austin announced that it has a new CEO. Effective immediately, Dianne Bangle will be heading the group, managing its operations and overall strategy. According to a press release about the hire, “Bangle joins RECA with more than 15 years of nonprofit and fundraising experience. Most recently, she served as the Executive Director of Development at the University of Texas at Austin’s McCombs School of Business, where she oversaw a team of major gift and annual giving officers; created and implemented donor and stewardship strategies; and led capital campaigns and other major projects.” Bangle also served as the executive director for the nonprofit Shoes for Austin for 12 years prior to her work at UT. In that same press release, RECA Board Chair Nick Moulinet explained the move, saying, “The concept of ‘it’ is impossible to describe, but with Dianne, we found it. … She has a wealth of business and management experience, a strong relationship with the Central Texas community and the wisdom needed to guide us through an increasingly complex regional landscape.” Bangle herself said she was excited to get the chance to lead the real estate group, adding, “We have such an important role to play in the ongoing conversation about how we grow as a region, and I am ready to join in and do my part.”
