Kim has played a vital and highly effective role in the formative years of The Sustainability Consortium.

Another valuable contribution was Kim’s help in creating a dedicated position within her office that will focus exclusively on Consortium fundraising and membership. After a national search, we are pleased to introduce Greg Lewis. On January 18, Greg assumed the Assistant Director position with our Corporate and Foundations Relations team dedicated to serving The Consortium and its development needs. Greg and his family have relocated from Baltimore, Maryland, where he was employed at the Washington D.C.-based non-profit, Northeast-Midwest Institute. He served as Program Director and was responsible for raising capital from regional corporations and national and locale specific foundations to support one of their flagship initiatives focused at rejuvenating economically struggling urban areas and disadvantaged communities.

Greg brings important insight, experience, and contacts to the work of The Consortium. He can be reached at: or by calling Jennifer Quinton at (479) 575-4594. Kate Sutterfield will continue to support The Consortium and Greg in his new role. Kate’s contact information is: and (479) 575-7759.

Please join us in welcoming Greg to both the University of Arkansas and to The Consortium.
