Tampa Downtown Partnership names CEO

After acting in the role for a year, Lynda Remund will become the president and CEO of the Tampa Downtown Partnership at the start of 2019.

Remund has been the acting president since Christine Burdick stepped down from the role in December 2017.

“I’m very excited about the momentum we’ve had and the direction the Partnership is heading,” Remund said in a press release.

The Tampa Downtown Partnership works to help with physical and economic development of downtown Tampa through public/private partnerships. It has been at the helm of a slew of projects in recent years, including implementing the Coast Bike Share program in and around downtown, revitalizing Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park and launching the Downtowner service and Winter Village.

Remund has been with the partnership for almost 20 years, starting in 2000 as director of district operations. She is also involved in the community, serving on the Greater Tampa Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors, Tampa Preparatory School’s Board of Trustees and Visit Tampa Bay’s Advisory Committee.

“Lynda’s ability to support and lead a collaborative work environment while effectively managing the Partnership’s strategic initiatives has proven to the board officers and the executive committee that Lynda is the best person for this position,” said Mickey Jacob, chairman of the Tampa Downtown Partnership, in a press release.
