Uptown Dallas Inc., a nonprofit that spearheads initiatives to develop and manage the Uptown Public Improvement District, has hired Jim Reagan as CEO.

Reagan’s position was created by the district’s board of directors as part of an initiative to create programs in the Uptown area for public safety, neighborhood upkeep and marketing of the area.

Prior to joining Uptown Dallas, Reagan spent 17 years leading nonprofits and almost two decades in corporate executive leadership. He spent the past 11 years at the Austin Symphony Orchestra as executive director.

“I’m very excited to put my more than 35 years experience as a nonprofit and corporate CEO to work for Uptown,” said Reagan.

Reagan has already met with the Dallas Police Department and city leaders to move forward with Uptown’s plan to develop and manage its growth.
