Amy Reinhart tapped as new Downtown Coordinator

Amy Reinhart

Last month, we let you know that we had launched the search for our new Downtown Development Coordinator. A number of very talented individuals applied, and the selection committee picked Amy Reinhart to lead Tiffin's downtown revitalization efforts.
Amy received her degrees from Kent State University with honors, worked at Toledo-based architecture firm SSOE, and taught at the University of Toledo. Most recently, Amy ran Leadership Seneca County, managing volunteers, serving both employers and participants with the highest level of organization, professionalism, and effectiveness. She started on June 2 and has hit the ground running. You can reach her at and by cell at 419.619.5517.
