The Grayslake Community Park District Board of Commissioners has named Kristin Splitt as the district’s new Executive Director. Splitt has served the District for over 19 years as Superintendent of Recreation and most recently as Deputy Director. Splitt will be replacing Jeff Nehila who resigned in December to take a similar position with the Deerfield Park District. “The board is thrilled to move Kristin into this position as she has been an integral part of the success and growth of our district for many years. We are confident she will continue to lead our district in the right direction” stated Ken Ryan, Board President. Splitt has been serving as interim director since December and was officially named Executive Director at the March 15, 2017 park board meeting.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to be able to lead this outstanding district and its dedicated staff into the future.” Splitt said. “Grayslake is a wonderful community and we will continue to serve our residents by providing the finest recreation programs and facilities to meet the needs of our entire community.”
