A man already busy and involved in many aspects of the community has taken on yet another role in the Energy City.
Travis Frank, who serves on City Council and the Board of the United Way just to name a couple organizations he's with, will be taking on the interim position of Director of the St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation. He'll be temporarily replacing Becky Cassidy during her maternity leave.
"It's a really exciting new opportunity for me. I'm very experienced in that line of business, so it's going to be a great chance to serve the community a little bit further and take on a role that's been well established for a long time," said Frank.
"This is a one year term, just while Becky's away, so I can handle the transition throughout that period of time while she's gone, make sure that the three major fundraising events continue to be a success like she's built on, and then transition her back on afterwards."
This means that Frank will be heading up the upcoming Radiothon, the Color Run and the Festival of Trees.
"My background has been in marketing and doing a lot of development there. I know we've talked about a few projects that she'd like to see done in the next year, updating the website and things like that, so I'll definitely try to build upon that. However, for the most part my goal will be to make it a smooth transition while she's away," he added.
Frank will officially take over the reigns for 2018 at the end of February.
"I'm just looking forward to the great opportunity, and again, looking forward to growing with the Foundation and bringing in a lot of money to serve a great cause in our community," he concluded.
