Chris Dobrozsi, Executive Vice President, Development with Neyer Properties, Inc. and ULI Cincinnati Chair along with the organization’s Advisory Board, are excited to announce the well-deserved promotion of a long-time staff member of Urban Land Institute (“ULI”) Cincinnati to the position of Executive Director. Kim Fantaci took the helm as Debbie Dent announced her retirement, effective June 30, 2023. This is a pivotal moment for our professional real estate organization. Until now, the group has been led by two staff members, each part-time. Now, with this newly-created position, ULI Cincinnati plans to elevate the awareness of the organization and its service to the community.
“With Kim’s guidance, we anticipate ULI Cincinnati will continue to have an impact on our region. She brings with her an incredible track record of leadership in association management and nearly 12 years with ULI Cincinnati. She is the quintessential leader for ULI Cincinnati, and we’re honored to have her on board,” shared Dobrozsi.
Kim was hired as a part-time contractor to manage the activities, programs and initiatives of ULI Cincinnati in 2011 and she has been there every step of the way as our District Council has grown not only in membership and engagement but awareness and impact throughout the region.
She worked closely with previous Executive Directors and organizational partners to establish such programs as the Real Estate Accelerator Lab (REAL) and the East Central Regional Product Council (RPC) as well as developed relationships with community organizations, city officials and local universities.
She has supported more than a dozen local Technical Advisory Panels (TAPs), an Advisory Services Panel (ASP) and nearly 400 events.
The expanded Executive Director role became a reality after substantial strategic planning for ULI Cincinnati. The organization’s Advisory Board has been preparing for continual growth for several years and a full-time Executive Director with Kim’s skillset will allow members and leaders to realize our goals, both short and long-term. ULI Cincinnati is fortunate that Kim’s passion has aligned with ULI’s strategy to better impact the built environment, invest in young professionals, advance programs, and enhance connections to national resources.
