Ohio CDC Association Announces New Executive Director
Torey Hollingsworth to lead statewide membership organization building a robust community development environment
COLUMBUS – 03.13.23 – The Ohio CDC Association announced it has selected Torey Hollingsworth as its new executive director. The Ohio CDC Association (OCDCA) is a statewide membership organization that fosters vibrant neighborhoods and improves the quality of life in all communities through advocacy and capacity building of member agencies. 
Hollingsworth brings to the OCDCA more than a decade of experience in community advocacy, having most recently served as the Director of the Office of the Dayton City Commission, where she managed the policy work and support staff for the city’s elected leadership. Hollingsworth will succeed current executive director Nate Coffman effective April 3rd. 
“Torey is a talented leader who has demonstrated an incredible passion for building communities throughout her career,” said Coffman. “Guided by her expertise, energy and experience, I’m certain the entire Ohio CDC community will grow and thrive.”
Hollingsworth began her career as an AmeriCorps VISTA for Greater DC Cares, and then Senior Regional Organizer at the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC), both in Washington, DC. Upon returning to Ohio in 2015, Hollingsworth served as manager of research and policy at the Greater Ohio Policy Center before joining Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley’s administration as a senior policy aide.
“This is a pivotal moment for Ohio communities,” said Hollingsworth. “I’m proud to support and contribute to the incredible work our member organizations are doing to lift communities, address the needs of neighborhoods and improve the quality of life for people across Ohio.”
Torey received her Masters of City and Regional Planning from The Ohio State University and her BA from the University of Chicago. She is a 2021 graduate of Leadership Dayton and serves on the Dayton Art Institute Associate Board.
