Historic Pullman Foundation welcomes new hires

As Historic Pullman Foundation celebrates 50 incredible years, it’s also a time for looking to the future. HPF is excited to welcome two new members to the foundation staff: Bart Darress, the new Director of Communications & Membership, and Daniela Salgado, the new Tours & Office Coordinator.

“There’s so much growth and dramatic change right now at Historic Pullman Foundation,” said Executive Director Julian Jackson. “Bart and Daniela join an organization that’s poised to do great things.”

Bart has spent his career developing award-winning campaigns at international advertising agencies from Saatchi & Saatchi to BBDO and Deutsch. His work on Fortune 500 brands have garnered some of the industry’s highest honors.

“As Communications & Membership Director for HPF, I hope to use my years of marketing expertise to really tell the Pullman story and connect to a far wider audience,” said Darress.

In a few short years, Daniela went from cashier to running an entire restaurant, managing 15 employees, handling vendor relationships, inventory control, and customer relations, all while keeping track of sales, payroll and finances.

“Myself and the entire board are happy to welcome Bart and Daniela to our team,” said HPF Board President Maria P. Hibbs. “With their help, we can expand communications, grow our membership, and increase Pullman’s visibility to attract a diverse and growing number of visitors to our historic district.”

“Using my people skills, I hope to bring more community engagement, including the Hispanic neighborhoods here on the Southside,” said Salgado.

In addition, Daniela looks forward to bringing her organizational acumen to help streamline the foundation’s day-to-day functions.

“The HPF team has really come together to create a dynamic foundation,” offered Jackson. “I see great things ahead for the organization, and the entire Pullman neighborhood.”

Welcome to Historic Pullman, Bart and Daniela!
