Meet PM's New Executive Director!
We at Preservation Maryland are very pleased to welcome Nicholas Redding to the team as our new Executive Director.
Building upon his extensive experience in protecting and interpreting places that matter, Mr. Redding says, “I cannot wait to join the team at Preservation Maryland and to carry out its bold and ambitious Strategic Plan. I’ll be heading out immediately to meet with individuals and groups across the State who have long been working at the grassroots of preservation. I’m eager to hear how we can provide them with the support they need.”
Before coming to Preservation Maryland, Mr. Redding was the Executive Director at Long Branch Plantation where he successfully revitalized the organization while realizing an ambitious strategic plan for the historic house and working farm in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley.
He also served as the Deputy Director for Advocacy at the Civil War Trust, America’s largest non-profit battlefield preservation organization. While with the Trust, Mr. Redding was responsible for planning and directing preservation advocacy campaigns throughout the Mid-Atlantic, including the effort that turned back the proposal to build a casino on the Gettysburg battlefield.
Mr. Redding is a graduate of Shepherd University. He serves on the board of the Clermont Foundation in Berryville and has been appointed twice to the Frederick County Historic Preservation Commission. He lives outside Frederick with his wife and two beagles.
Redding will assume his role as the new executive director in late September, 2014. For more information please contact Elly Colmers .
