Historic Salisbury Foundation, Inc. has hired Kimberly Stieg as the new Executive Director.

Stieg will move to Salisbury from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, with her husband Scott, a recently retired school administrator. She should start working at the end of January. Stieg (pronounced Steeg) will be the foundation’s 11th director in 49 years of history.

His career includes nonprofit management, fundraising, membership development, staff and volunteer management, budgeting, grant writing, and event management.

“Kimberly’s work experience and credentials ticked all of our boxes,” said Michael Young, vice chairman of the board and chairman of the research committee. “She’s knowledgeable, well spoken, gets straight to the point and gets things done. We are delighted to have it.

Steig and her husband were active in the preservation community in Oklahoma City where they handled real estate management and investment, including renovations to several historic homes. She recently sold an art and vintage items retail business that she founded there.

Prior to Oklahoma City, Stieg managed the day-to-day operations of the 200,000 square foot Historic Columbus, Georgia, Convention and Trade Center. As deputy director of the center, Stieg oversaw an annual budget of $ 2.3 million and a team of 50 members. In one year, the organization hosted 560 events generating more than $ 20 million for the local economy.

From 2008 to 2014, Stieg was the Director of Membership and Marketing for the Saugahatchee Country Club in Opelika, Alabama. She was responsible for increasing sales and memberships. Prior to that, she worked in Columbus, Georgia as a program coordinator for the Literacy Alliance and a writer for the Columbus Community News.

The new director comes on board as the organization plans a celebration of the Hall House’s 200th anniversary and the Foundation’s 50th anniversary.

The Historic Salisbury Foundation owns and operates the Hall House, Historic Salisbury Station and Ice House, an architectural salvage warehouse. The foundation consults with owners of historic neighborhoods, holds history classes, holds seminars, honors conservationists and hosts OctoberTour, its annual tour of historic homes.
