Executive Leadership Transition at North Capitol Main Street, Inc. (NCMS)
Washington, DC – The Board of Directors of North Capitol Main Street (NCMS) announce that Demetris Cheatham has stepped down as the Executive Director of NCMS after nearly three years, to pursue other personal and professional opportunities. Her last day will be May 31, 2016.
“This has been a tremendous experience at NCMS and I will dearly miss all of the business owners and volunteers within the North Capitol Main Street corridor, my fellow DC Main Streets colleagues and DSLBD partners,” Cheatham said. During Cheatham’s tenure at NCMS they provided over $300,000 in direct assistance to businesses, raised over $100,000 in unrestricted funding and hosted a record breaking arts festival for two years straight. “I look forward to watching the next stage of NCMS’s development unfold.”
The Board has unanimously approved outgoing Board Chair, Aisha Bond, to serve as the organization’s Executive Director during this time of transition with the expectation that she assumes the role fully in the near future.
Bond is a licensed attorney and resident of Bloomingdale. She has served as the Board Chair for NCMS for the past two years. “I am excited to continue my work with NCMS in this new capacity and prepare the organization for its next phase in growth,” said Bond. “As NCMS begins to execute on its new strategic vision, I will work with the Board to ensure that the businesses and the corridor continues to thrive.”
