The City District Main Street (Website) has just announced the hiring of its new executive director, Mike Griffin.

Griffin officially started his role with City District on March 18 and comes to the position with 10 years of nonprofit experience in his belt. He most recently served as director of the Greater Meredith Program, a non-profit that focused on beautification, preservation, and community building in Meredith, New Hampshire.

Griffin also played a key role in partnership growth for Project Happy, a social media platform that models and promotes volunteerism to teens, as well as connecting them to internships and job shadows by way of career exploration.

“There’s so much potential for growth, innovation, and community connection in downtown Orlando,” said Griffin. “I’m eager to connect with members, neighbors, and area businesses in the heart of our city to turn that potential into something tangible and rewarding. I’m boots on the ground all the way!”

As executive director, Griffin is responsible for leading the development, execution, implementation, and documentation of activities and initiatives of the City District Main Street. He will serve as a grassroots organizer for City District events and initiatives, and foster relationships with local government, neighboring community organizations, business, and resident members to implement the City District’s transformation strategies and objectives.
