Downtown group votes to make interim leader permanent

FORT WAYNE – The Downtown Improvement District has an executive director.

The group’s board voted unanimously Tuesday to make interim director Bill Brown’s appointment permanent, replacing Rich Davis, who resigned June 7. Brown has served as interim director since then.

Zach Benedict, who headed the search committee, said Brown’s passion for downtown made him the obvious choice.

“He’s been practicing what he’s been preaching for a couple of decades now,” Benedict said.

Brown, who also celebrated his 62nd birthday Tuesday, said he most looks forward to the opportunities presented by a reinvigorated downtown.

“It’s an exciting time for downtown. We have momentum,” Brown said.
