A Cincinnati nonprofit focused on sustainability has a new top leader.
Green Umbrella on Monday named Ryan Mooney-Bullock as its next executive director effective June 25. She succeeds Kristin Weiss, who resigned in March after three years to spend more time with her family.
Mooney-Bullock, who was the group’s Communications and Program Manager, joined Green Umbrella in 2011. She previously did research at the Center for Neighborhood Technology, an urban sustainability think tank in Chicago; taught science at Princeton High School, and developed and managed the Civic Garden Center's Green Learning Station.
She earned a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies at the University of Chicago and a master’s degree in environmental science from Antioch University New England in Keene, N.H.
“Ryan's support of Green Umbrella’s Action Teams over the last seven months has helped them strategically advance their progress on our 2020 sustainability goals. I am looking forward to working with her as we take Green Umbrella to its next level," Bill Scheyer, Green Umbrella board president, said in a statement.
Green Umbrella, founded in 1998, is a regional sustainability alliance working to ensure that Cincinnati remains one of the 10 most sustainable metro areas in the country. In October, Cincinnati was named the No. 1 metro area in sustainability by Site Selection Magazine.
“I look forward to making sure sustainability resonates with everyone – whether it is through employment opportunities, access to greenspace to get outside, viable transportation options, clean water, affordable energy, healthy food that supports our local economy, or creative solutions to waste,” Mooney-Bullock said in a statement.
