WXYZ (DETROIT) - Detroit Riverfront Conservancy CEO Faye Nelson will be leaving that position at the end of this month to become President of the DTE Energy Foundation and Vice President of Public Affairs, a newly created position.
Nelson will be a part of DTE's top corporate leadership team and in her new position will have an opportunity help DTE strategically invest its multi-million dollar resources in DTE holdings and interests throughout the nation.
Nelson told 7 Action News she would begin her new position at DTE in mid February and a search will soon get underway at the Conservancy to replace her.
Channel 7 Editorial Director Chuck Stokes said, "Faye Nelson ran the Riverfront Conservancy for 10 years and is credited with securing more than a billion dollars to the downtown riverfront and 17,000 jobs. She is one of Detroit's most successful and respected movers and shakers."
