White to leave River City Company, search underway for her replacement


Kim White is stepping down as president and CEO of River City Company, leaving the board of the downtown development nonprofit to search for a new leader.

“Kim’s leadership has been invaluable in energizing our city through many successful initiatives and partnerships, and we wish her well as she pursues new opportunities,” says Tom Griscom, board chairman.

White, a Chattanooga native, served as president and CEO of the organization for more than a decade.

“It has been a significant honor to serve our community in this way, but cities and organizations change over time and need to keep evolving,” White says. “The time has come for me to leave River City Company and look for other ways to lead in our city using the experience I’ve gained working with elected officials, business and civic leaders.”

The board of River City Company expects to complete the search for a new leader by summer. A leadership transition phase with White and a new CEO is expected to begin in about three months.

“As Kim begins her transition, she will focus on implementing the next phase of strategic planning for the Riverfront,” Griscom says. “This will offer a solid starting point for her successor to continue the momentum of our organization.”
