Tammi Holloway has been named CEO

Tammi Holloway has been named CEO of The Foundation for Sustainable Urban Communities. She will assume the position on Jan. 1, 2021.

Holloway had been serving as interim CEO since the unexpected death Feb. 27 of The Foundation’s CEO Landri Taylor; she was board chair for three years prior to taking the interim position. King H. Harris assumed the position of chairman of the foundation.

“I am pleased to announce Tammi Holloway as our new CEO,” said King Harris. “She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will be most valuable in guiding the Foundation into the future.”

Holloway has worked for 24 years in several capacities on the redevelopment of Stapleton, Denver’s former airport. For the past six years, Holloway has been president/CEO of SDC, the private, non-profit created by the city of Denver to lease and sell Stapleton property after it closed as an airport in 1995.

She worked closely with Taylor which allows her to maintain stable continuity as the organization moves forward. She said she is excited to step into the new role.

“I am thrilled and honored for this wonderful opportunity,’’ she said. “The talented and committed staff and I are determined to continue working diligently on The Foundation’s initiatives to advance the principles of Stapleton’s redevelopment plan.”

Holloway also serves as the President/CEO for SDC Services Corp. which provides management services to SDC, Stapleton Design, Inc., and Park Creek Metropolitan District. Prior to being CEO, Holloway was SDC’s general counsel and vice president of operations.

Holloway earned her law degree from Samford University in Birmingham, Ala. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, Ga.
