We’re pleased to announce that Amy Perry has been named the Park’s Executive Director. She had been the Interim Executive Director and now assumes the position in a permanent capacity.
“Southeastern CT is rich with history and the Thames River Heritage Park will play a leading role in building awareness of and visitorship to the area. I’m thrilled to continue the work that has been in the making for so many years and by so many dedicated people,” says Perry.
“The TRHP Foundation is pleased that Amy has accepted the position. Having the benefit of her experience has been a boon to the organization since she joined us and we look forward to continued progress in the future,” says Marian Galbraith, TRHP Board of Directors President and former City of Groton Mayor.
Among Perry’s responsibilities will be to build a collaboration among the almost 20 heritage sites within the Park to create a community of sites for a rich and relevant visitor experience. Before joining the Park she had been a principal at Smizer Perry, an award-winning marketing and design firm and, more recently, served as Director of Communications for Chamilia, a division of Swarovski.
