COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Greater Columbus Arts Council (Arts Council) welcomes Christie Angel and David Teed to its Board of Trustees.
Christie Angel has been the President and CEO of YWCA Columbus since late 2017. She has served on the non-profit boards for YWCA Columbus, Mid-Ohio Foodbank, United Way and The Women’s Fund. Prior to joining the YWCA, she provided counsel and advisory services to businesses and non-profit organizations as the Principal of Government Relations and Public Affairs for Calfee Strategic Solutions. She was previously Deputy Chief of Staff and External Affairs & Services Director to Columbus Mayor Michael B. Coleman.
David Teed is a lawyer, business executive and private equity investor, currently working as the Managing Partner for Diogenes Capital. Previously, he led the parking asset investment platform for the Global Infrastructure Group of the Queensland Investment Corporation, where he led the parking concession transaction at The Ohio State University and served as CEO of CampusParc.
“We are so fortunate to have these two outstanding individuals join our board,” said Tom Katzenmeyer, president and CEO of the Arts Council. “Christie Angel in her role as Executive Director of the YWCA not only brings her intelligence, talent and compassion but also an important connection to the social service community. David Teed’s experience as a financial fund manager and global perspective are an excellent addition to a board already committed to responsible and forward-thinking stewardship of public funds.”
Angel and Teed will begin serving on July 1. Arts Council board members initially make a one-year commitment, with an option to serve up to seven years.
