Lynch hired as LLOP manager

By Jane Harrison
An experienced local promoter with the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce began management of Lake Lanier Olympic Park last month. Robin Lynch, who developed fundraising, membership and wellness initiatives for the chamber, started work at LLOP July 1, said Mimi Collins, Gainesville Hall ’96 chairperson.
“She has great fundraising experience, organizational skills, event planning and people skills and her experience working at the chamber transitions well” to the park job, Collins said. Between 11 and 15 applicants sought the position after Morgan House announced his resignation in May.
House stayed on the job through July 15 to help train his replacement, Collins said. He will stay involved during preparations for the ICF Dragon Boat World Championships in Sept. 2018.
The park’s governing body also approved hiring James Watson as full time assistant venue manager. Watson previously worked part time assisting House.
Collins said Lynch spent her first weeks on the job meeting with LLOP stakeholders and canoe/kayak and rowing club members. She does not have experience in the sports that established the 1996 Olympic venue, Collins said, but is taking time to learn more about them.
Lakeside will have an interview with Lynch in next month’s edition.
