YOUR BUSINESS AUTHORITY
Then: Executive director of Y School Age Services, Ozarks Regional YMCA
Now: Executive director, Ozark Greenways Inc.
Long a lover of the outdoors, Mary Kromrey gets to focus on it personally and professionally, with her executive director role of Ozark Greenways.
She came to the organization, which owns and manages the Frisco Highline Trail, in early 2016, taking over the leadership role in November 2017 after the retirement of Terry Whaley.
“It’s really cool,” she says of her job. “I love visiting and talking with people. I go to oodles and oodles of meetings and then I get to meet with donors and investors, public landowners and private landowners.”
Part of her current and future work is building out a portion of Springfield’s comprehensive plan with the trail system, which involves working closely with city and county officials, along with private contractors.
