Stacey Servo, founder of New2Lou, a social organization for newcomers to Louisville, has been hired to lead GLI’s talent attraction efforts. Talent attraction has been pegged as a key goal for GLI to help grow the Louisville economy.
“Servo will be responsible for a number of talent attraction strategies, specifically a talent ambassador program and launching a talent toolkit website for people interested in helping others relocate to Greater Louisville,” according to a news release.
In late 2009, Servo founded New2Lou, which hosts monthly social engagements across the city. Over the years, the group has spun off similar programs in Seattle and Durham, N.C. Servo is also the founder and president of property management company Green Horizon Management.
“Honestly I wasn’t really looking for a job, but when I saw this position and read through the description it sounded like the perfect fit for me and it would allow me to continue to focus on what I’m passionate about,” Servo told Insider. “Joining the GLI team and access to additional resources will allow me to focus on building the talent attraction resources we need and have a greater impact in our community.”
New2Lou will continue to operate as always. Servo’s husband, Amador Delatorre III, is a licensed Realtor and will be taking over all real estate responsibilities for Green Horizon.
“Being a transplant to Louisville herself, we think she brings a wonderful balance of real-life experience and interpretation, as well as a technical skillset that can help us with our internet and social media strategies around attracting folks to Greater Louisville,” said Deana Epperly Karem, vice president of regional economic growth for GLI.
In other GLI employment news, Sierra Enlow, who is currently a development manager at GLI, will transition to the position of economic development manager. Beginning May 2, Enlow will be managing client services within Advance Greater Louisville, the bi-state, 15-county regional partnership to accelerate business attraction in the area.
