Principal Officer

Kim Trent

BIO

Kim Trent has led the growth of Knox Heritage from a
small non-profit with no staff and few resources into one of the strongest
non-profit organizations in the state. Through her knowledge, interpersonal
skills and passion, Kim established Knox Heritage as a nationally-recognized
historic preservation leader. 

Kim has worked tirelessly to transform Knox Heritage’s
preservation efforts from vocal opposition into a proactive, win-win approach
that builds on relationships with business, governmental, and community leaders
to achieve mutually beneficial solutions. She has also been an effective
advocate for historic preservation as a driver of tourism and economic growth.

Kim has led a number of restoration projects that have
driven millions of dollars of public and private investment in the
community.  From private homes in historic neighborhoods to landmark
buildings downtown, Kim's work on these projects has resulted in the investment
of over $14 million of historic preservation tax credits into Knoxville's
economy.

Under Kim's leadership, Knox Heritage was awarded a
$97,500 "Partners in the Field" grant by The National Trust for
Historic Preservation. This 1-to-1 matching grant enabled Knox Heritage to
expand its efforts to the 16-county region around Knoxville.
