After serving as chief operating officer and interim director, Jesse Brackenbury last week was appointed executive director of the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, a nonprofit that manages a 15-acre network of parks in downtown Boston. Globe reporter Casey Ross recently spoke to Brackenbury about the job, the Greenway, and his plans. Here’s what he found out:
1. Brackenbury, 38, was raised in New York and developed an appreciation for the importance of public parks in a crowded urban environment.
“I really have urban parks in my blood. I understand how important they are in the lives of families and visitors. I feel really lucky to have joined the Greenway four years ago and had a chance to shape an incredibly important space for Boston.”
