Waterloo Greenway leader steps down to join ATP
Waterloo Greenway, the nonprofit group leading the development of a string of downtown parks along Waller Creek, has announced that CEO Peter Mullan is stepping down. Mullan, who joined the project in 2015, has accepted a new position as chief of architecture and design for the Austin Transit Partnership. In that role he will work within the body jointly created by the city and Capital Metro to implement the Project Connect transit plan. Waterloo Greenway will soon name an interim CEO and launch a national search for a new top executive. In a statement announcing the change, Waterloo Greenway Chair Cotter Cunningham praised Mullan for his six years leading the parks project and said the board will take the time needed to find the right candidate. “We will conduct a national CEO search to name our next highly qualified leader. This will include internal and local candidates, as well as those from around the country who share our calling and believe in our mission of environmental and cultural stewardship. We will be thoughtful in taking time to identify this leader, and until then, we will appoint an interim CEO to guide us forward as we prepare to celebrate the opening of Waterloo Park this year.”
