DLA’s Terry Uland Announces Retirement, Board Names Todd Ogden President/CEO
Downtown Lincoln Association’s (DLA; downtownlincoln.org) President/CEO Terry Uland has officially announced his retirement after 12 years of service to the organization. Uland handed over the reins to the current (at the time) DLA Deputy Director Todd Ogden on May 31.
“It has been an incredible honor to serve the Downtown community, and I am extremely proud of what our staff and board of have achieved over the last decade,” said Uland.
Since Uland took over in 2007, Downtown Lincoln has experienced over one billion dollars of investment, spanning from West Haymarket to the Telegraph District, and everything in between.
Uland has a longstanding history in community leadership in Lincoln, including 15 years as executive director of NeighborWorks Lincoln prior to his time with DLA. Uland has been involved with several community organizations including Voices of Hope. Uland, a Hastings native, is married, has two children and one granddaughter.
The DLA board of directors did a national search for a new leader, and ultimately decided the right person to lead the organization was Ogden. Ogden has been with DLA for over 12 years and was most recently named deputy director in 2014.
Ogden is a UNL alum and has served on several community boards including the Lincoln Haymarket Development Corporation (LHDC), American Marketing Association (AMA), Foundation for Educational Services (FES), Nebraska Children and Families Foundation, and the YMCA. Ogden, a Lincoln Native, has a wife and two children.
Moving forward, the Downtown Lincoln Association looks to continue its pursuit to achieve the goals set forth in the new Downtown Master Plan. Learn more about DLA at downtownlincoln.org or call (402) 434-6906.
