ATLANTA, GA, May 26, 2020. The Piedmont Park Conservancy welcomes Courtney Bugler as their new Chief Development and Marketing Officer.

“We are thrilled to have Courtney join the Conservancy, said Mark Banta, Piedmont Park Conservancy’s President and CEO.  “These are unprecedented, challenging times for small nonprofits like ours. Courtney’s background, skills and passion will help us navigate through the financial impact of COVID-19 and beyond. She will be an integral leader on our team.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to join Piedmont Park Conservancy, an organization with such a history in Atlanta,” says Courtney Bugler. “Piedmont Park is the heart of our community, and as we’ve seen in recent weeks, vibrant greenspace is more important than ever.  As the world has changed in the past couple of months, the need for support has only increased.  I’m honored to apply my skills and passion to this role.”

The Piedmont Park Conservancy partnered with BoardWalk Consulting, a national firm based in Atlanta in their search for a new leader for their Development and Marketing teams. Courtney Bugler’s arrival comes at a critical time for the Conservancy’s development strategy due to the pandemic. Bugler joined the Conservancy on May 18, 2020.
