EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT: Catherine Greenwell

TITLE: Manager, Corporate Engagement for Education

GLI Employee Since: April 2016

Describe your role at Greater Louisville Inc. in two sentences.

I work to connect GLI’s business network with our education, workforce development, and talent attraction efforts in three primary ways: finding new employment opportunities for youth in partnership with the Mayor’s SummerWorks program, engaging businesses to work with JCPS’ Talent Development Academies, and coordinating our university outreach to attract college graduates to Louisville.

What is your favorite part about working at GLI?

The people! Hands down the greatest coworkers in the world. Oh, and the view from the boardroom is a nice bonus.

What’s the best investment you’ve ever made?

The decision to stay in Louisville after graduating college and invest in my community is the best one I’ve made thus far! It’s powerful to see companies and organizations willingly give of their time and resources for the advancement of our community.

Outside the office, what do you like to do for fun?

Regardless of what we’re doing, I love to spend time with my family,
friends, and my pup, Nash (of course)!

Cats or Cards?

I’ve never been much of a cat person… 

If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would you choose?

The big man upstairs.
