Transitions for Parks and the Fish Team

July 9, 2019

Portland Parks & Recreation has added two new members to their senior management team – Todd Lofgren and Tonya Booker.

Todd Lofgren, who currently serves as Nick’s Senior Policy Director and liaison to Parks, has accepted a new role as the bureau’s Deputy Director.

Todd has been with the Fish team for two years, serving as liaison to the bureaus in our portfolio, including Parks, the Bureau of Environmental Services, and the Portland Water Bureau.

Todd brings over 20 years of experience in public policy, management, and business and economic development for both the public sector and non-profits in the U.S. and internationally. In 2007, he joined PP&R as the Business Development Coordinator, and then served as PP&R’s Property & Business Development Manager until 2015. Todd and his family then moved to Morocco for two years, where he worked on economic development initiatives.

While Todd will be greatly missed on the Fish team, he will be an outstanding Deputy Director for the Parks bureau. We wish him well.

Tonya Booker will also be joining Parks as the new Land Stewardship Division Manager. She has a wealth of experience in education, parks and recreation, and community programs.  Tonya previously worked at Portland Community College, where she has served for more than 12 years, including most recently as the Division Dean of Continuing Education. Before her time at PCC, Tonya worked for the City of San Carlos, California in their Parks & Recreation Department.

Congratulations Todd and Tonya!
