After a tumultuous year, the Miracle Mile Improvement District in Stockton has chosen Karin M. Moss as its new executive director.
Moss comes from the Turlock Chamber of Commerce where she served as the CEO. She also served as the Chair of the Stanislaus State Business Advisory Committee.
Moss’s career spans 30 years in corporate and nonprofit organizations. She has been a regularly featured speaker at conferences, including Business Retention Expansion International, the International Downtown Association, League of California Cities, International Association of Fairs and Expositions and the Governors Conference on Tourism.
“After a very difficult 2017 which necessitated a restructuring of our policies and procedures, the MMID Board unanimously agreed that Karin’s breadth of experience and expertise are an excellent fit for us as we establish sound working relationships within the community the city and our local property owners and businesses,” said Matthew Grizzle, MMID Board president in a statement. “We’re delighted to welcome Karin to our staff and take this opportunity to thank Denise Jefferson for serving in the role of interim executive director.”
Jefferson was holding the position on a part-time basis until the MMID was recertified and a new director could be found after the previous director was charged with embezzlement.
A welcome reception will be held for Moss on Feb. 15, 5-7 p.m. at La Palma Restaurant Banquet Room, 2301 Pacific Avenue, in Stockton.
