The former owner of Over-the-Rhine retailer Park + Vine has a new job at a Greater Cincinnati environmental group.
Danny Korman will advocate for bicycling as trails ambassador for Green Umbrella, whose mission is to coordinate environmental and sustainability collaboration among 200 members including nonprofits, businesses, educational institutions and governments.
Former Park + Vine owner Danny Korman has taken a job with Cincinnati environmental group Green Umbrella.
Part of Korman’s job will be to gather support for Tri-State Trails and a massive plan to build a 42-mile, regional network of bike trails that would connect communities and job centers.
Green Umbrella describes Korman as a regular bicycle commuter and outdoorsman. Park + Vine, which recently closed in Over-the-Rhine, was a business that also advocated activism.
Korman has 15 years of nonprofit management experience in city, county and state governments in economic development, historic preservation, bicycling, marketing and media relations.
“We are excited to have Danny working on bicycling advocacy in an official capacity in Greater Cincinnati,” said Frank Henson, chairman of Tri-State Trails.
