094: Ken Busby-Rte 66 Alliance & Cultural Czar of Northeast Oklahoma
Ken Busby has served the arts community as an advocate, staff professional, and executive for three decades. He has been in the trenches and on the mountaintops. Through it all, he has built a portfolio of experiences that make him an attractive counselor and consultant to arts organizations seeking to strengthen their programs.
Ken has been honored by the arts community for his work and dedication. Leadership Oklahoma recognized him as a distinguished graduate of that program in 2015. Recently Ken was listed in the inaugural class of 55 Over 55 Inspiring Oklahomans.
Ken is the current Executive Director and CEO of the Route 66 Alliance, coordinating efforts among state-level Route 66 organizations to promote historical, tourism, and economic development projects.
On this episode of the Spirit of Leading podcast, I talk with Ken bout his career and the lessons of leadership he has learned throughout.
Ken served thirteen years as executive director and CEO of the Tulsa Arts & Humanities Council
