Urban Alliance appoints interim executive director
June 23, 2021
An economic development nonprofit in Kalamazoo chose an interim leader as it searches for its next permanent executive director.
Kalamazoo-based Urban Alliance said Tuesday that it appointed Chris Pompey to the role of interim executive director. Pompey formerly served as the nonprofit’s director of prevention. He replaces Luke Kujacznski, who served as executive director for six years before leaving the organization in May.
“Urban Alliance is very disappointed to say goodbye to Luke,” Pompey said. “He impactfully led our team and leaves behind large shoes to fill. I am excited to guide Urban Alliance as we continue to forge ahead in a progressive direction and positively impact those we serve in the community. We have made great strides recently despite the challenges of the pandemic, but there is always work to be done in creating a safe and healthy Kalamazoo. There are lots of folks hurting right now, and the need for intervention is greater than ever.”
