RAP Announces New Executive Director



JACKSONVILLE, FL – Riverside Avondale Preservation (RAP) announces Warren E. Jones as its next executive director, effective June 12.  

“Jones comes with extensive experience as a senior communications professional at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare, where he deeply engaged with the community as a key member of the senior leadership team,” said Nancy Powell, RAP board chair. “The board of directors are thrilled he has chosen to bring his leadership skills to our organization.”  

“Warren stood out for his demonstrated leadership abilities, listening and communications skills, strategic thinking, thoughtfulness and willingness to engage with the community at many levels and situations,” added Christina Bottomly, RAP board member.

“Like so many people, my wife and I fell in love with the historic character, beautiful parks and vibrant businesses in Riverside and Avondale,” said Jones. “We heard about the great work of RAP and the opportunities to get involved in our new community. I am excited to be able to lend my talents to the organization, which provides such a meaningful role within the community and Jacksonville itself.”
