Cooper’s Ferry Partnership Appoints Dana Redd, Cheryl Norton to Leadership

For 6 years, Susan Bass Levin has been Chair of Cooper’s Ferry Partnership, leading the nonprofit as it made significant positive changes to the city. She recently completed her distinguished term, moving to now serve as a member of the board. The organization has announced that former Camden City Mayor Dana Redd will assume the position of Chair. American Water COO Cheryl Norton has been appointed Board Vice Chair.

“I have had the privilege of knowing Susan for 3 decades and have always admired her ability to identify and solve problems with pragmatic, meaningful and compassionate solutions,” says Kris Kolluri, president and CEO of Cooper’s Ferry Partnership.

“Susan was instrumental in helping me and the organization survive the most challenging healthcare and financial crisis imaginable,” he says. “We are inspired by her legacy and pleased that she will continue contributing to the organization.”

“I am honored to have had the opportunity to serve as Chair of Cooper’s Ferry Partnership,” Bass Levin says. She called incoming chair Dana Redd her dear friend. “I wish her success.”

Redd served as Camden Mayor from 2009 to 2017, a time when Camden became a national model for Urban recovery. She currently serves as CEO of the Rowan University/Rutgers-Camden Board of Governors.

The Board’s new Vice Chair, Cheryl Norton, recently made history at American Water when she was named the company’s first female COO.

“I am honored to have served side-by-side with Susan for many years and grateful for her service that helped drive this extraordinary organization,” Redd said. “I look forward to continuing the mission of Cooper’s Ferry, working to increase the vibrancy of this great city and improve and enhance the lives of the city’s residents.”
