The Midtown Alliance, the community improvement organization that's pushed for more pedestrian friendly streetscapes and smart growth development in the increasingly bustling neighborhood, says it's picked Clean Air Campaign Executive Director Kevin Green to succeed Susan Mendheim, who's served as president of the alliance since 1982. Via the alliance:

Green joins the Midtown Alliance after serving four years as the executive director of The Clean Air Campaign, an organization that deploys innovative transportation and air quality programs for employers, commuters and schools throughout Metro Atlanta and Georgia. He graduated from Emory University with a law degree and practiced law in Atlanta for 11 years, before becoming Vice President of Environmental Affairs at the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce where he advanced regional policy initiatives for water resources, air quality, and sustainable development.

“I look forward to joining the Midtown Alliance and building on the amazing successes that Susan and her team have accomplished,” Green said. “In terms of great community visions come to life, Midtown is unparalleled. It’s a great urban experience today, and with continued bold vision and hard work, Midtown can only get better. That is exciting.”

We've placed a call with the Clean Air Campaign to see if the organization has lined up a replacement. We'll update when we hear word. So says the Clean Air Campaign Chairwoman Renay Blumenthal:

“Kevin’s leadership as executive director has advanced The Clean Air Campaign’s mission for less traffic and cleaner air. His tenure has brought strong growth as the organization expanded its reach impacting Georgia employers, commuters and schools. The Midtown Alliance stands to benefit greatly from Kevin’s leadership, and we are excited that he will continue to play a role in the issues that shape the region. The Clean Air Campaign remains well-positioned to build on its successes and make continued progress on transportation and air quality with the talented team that it has in place. The Clean Air Campaign Board has formed a search committee that will define the process for identifying qualified candidates for the executive director role.”
