A Message from WG Board Chair Cotter Cunningham

After six years of tireless work to further Waterloo Greenway’s mission, Peter Mullan has announced that he will be departing from his role as CEO and accepting a new position as Chief of Architecture and Urban Design for the Austin Transit Partnership (ATP), the organization newly created by the City of Austin and Capital Metro to implement the Project Connect transit plan. We are grateful for the significant contributions Peter has made at Waterloo Greenway, and we wish him the very best in his new endeavor. As an organization, we are big fans of the work being done for Project Connect and look forward to continuing to work together for the benefit of all Austinites.

Our board and staff remain fiercely committed to fulfilling our organization’s promise to the community – to create an inclusive and vibrant park system that will connect people not only to nature, but to one another. With that in mind, we will conduct a national CEO search to name our next highly-qualified leader. This will include internal and local candidates, as well as those from around the country who share our calling and believe in our mission of environmental and cultural stewardship. We will be thoughtful in taking time to identify this leader, and until then, we will appoint an interim CEO to guide us forward as we prepare to celebrate the opening of Waterloo Park this year.

On behalf of the entire Waterloo Greenway board, I want to thank our staff members for all of their amazing work and our donors and the City of Austin for their trust in us. Waterloo will be an amazing addition to our already great city. I am so excited to share what we have built.

Best regards,

Cotter Cunningham
Chair, Waterloo Greenway
