Providence parks director to head city operations
PROVIDENCE -- The city's superintendent of parks has been appointed the city's director of operations.
Alix Ogden has worked as the parks director for four years, during the construction of the Roger Williams Botanical Center and a reorganization of the Parks Department.
“She is a true innovator who sets high standards for herself, her department and employees, and understands the importance of working collaboratively with other city departments and outside agencies,” Mayor David N. Cicilline said in a statement announcing the appointment. “Alix has exactly what it takes to continue the transformation of operations into a 21st-century organization.”
Ogden will begin her new job March 31. Deputy Parks Superintendent Robert McMahon will take over as parks superintendent until the mayor and the Board of Parks Commissioners determine the next step.
As operations director, Ogden will provide leadership and work closely with the management teams for nine city departments, including the Department of Public Works, Inspection and Standards and the Water Supply Board.
“I am extremely proud of the innovative steps we’ve taken over the past four years in the parks department to create efficiencies, maximize city resources and strengthen our park system,” Ogden said in a statement.
“I am honored the mayor has chosen me to lead operations and I look forward to working with his extraordinary team to continue to move the City of Providence forward.”
