On March 8, the SWACO Board of Trustees unanimously voted to appoint Susan Tilgner as Interim Executive Director upon the retirement of Ty Marsh, who on March 31, 2022 concluded eight successful years of leading the organization.
Ms. Tilgner currently serves as the Chair of the Board of Trustees and has served on the Board for the past nine years, helping to guide the agency’s efforts to assist Franklin County in reaching a diversion goal of 75% by 2032.
As Interim Executive Director, Ms. Tilgner will oversee all of the day-to-day operations of the agency while the search for a new permanent Executive Director proceeds.
“I am pleased to be able to assist the agency to provide a level of continuity during this period of transition,” said Interim Executive Director Tilgner. “The Board and I are committed to the mission and strategic direction that we all worked together to set for SWACO and our community. We are looking for the best person to help us accomplish that mission and move us forward into the future.”
