Elmira, New York – Starting early next month, Elmira Downtown Development will have a new operations manager.
According to EDD, Kylene Kiah will start as the organization’s Operations Manager on September 6, 2022.
In the role, Kiah “will be responsible for the continued revitalization of downtown Elmira”, EDD said in its announcement.
Kiah is from Elmira and is the owner of Wine and Design, based out of Corning. EDD said she has been involved in various Elmira events since 2012, including the street painting festival and the painting of multiple murals throughout the city.
“We’re extremely fortunate to have Kylene who has strong ties with the downtown community and will carry out our mission going forward,” said EDD Board President Chris Coletta.
Earlier this year, Kiah’s move to Operations Manager follows the resignations of both the EDD Director and Marketing and Events Manager.
