Released by Carroll Rogé with Leadership Tyler:

TYLER, TX — Leadership Tyler, an organization with a 25-year history of equipping leaders to enrich the Tyler community, is currently accepting applications for a new executive director following the resignation of Cindy Klein.

Klein, who has served Leadership Tyler since 2004, has accepted a position developing national business strategy for Mentoring Minds, a Tyler-based educational publisher focused on creating a successful learning environment for children.

"I am personally grateful to Cindy for her six years of service to Leadership Tyler — and our community — that revitalized and reorganized our whole program," said Joan Andrews, current president of the Leadership Tyler board of directors. "While we are sad to see Cindy go, we are also excited for the opportunities the new position will offer her."

Applicants for the position of executive director with Leadership Tyler can

e-mail a resume to info@leadershiptyler.org. Qualifications for the position include a four-year degree, communication and presentation skills, organizational leadership experience, entrepreneurial mindset and attention to detail.

Leadership Tyler is a non-profit organization providing unique opportunities for people to improve their professional skills, learn about Tyler area needs and develop as community leaders. The Leadership Tyler curriculum educates class members about the vital issues that affect the community, while offering professional development training to address those issues and create positive change. Leadership Tyler offers a nine-month intensive core program as well as an executive orientation series. In addition, the organization offers additional services to local businesses and non-profit organizations to aid in strategic growth.

"My work with Mentoring Minds through Leadership Tyler actually led to my new role with the company," said Klein. "While working with LT has absolutely been one of most rewarding experiences of my life, I look forward to serving another mission-driven organization using the principles I learned through Leadership Tyler."

Brian Brandt, past president of Leadership Tyler, said the organization is very appreciative to Klein for her "outstanding oversight" which has contributed to the group's growth. "While we will miss Cindy very much, we know she has helped lay the groundwork for an organization that will continue to be a driving force in Tyler's future for decades to come."

Andrews also expressed appreciation for the "very engaged" LT board of directors and "dedicated" sponsors. "We pledge to continue the legacy of learning and continual improvement that is central to Leadership Tyler by ensuring a successful transition to a new executive director," Andrews added.
