Regina's Bio:

Regina Koetters is driven to unleash the unrealized potential of the country's riverfront Rust Belt cities through regionally significant redevelopment projects and investments in infrastructure. She chose Pittsburgh over every other city in the nation to begin her work in 2008. A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Regina was commissioned an officer in the United States Navy in 1999 upon graduating from the United States Naval Academy with a B.S. in Naval Architecture. In 2007, she transitioned to the United States Navy Reserve and completed her masters studies in progressive real estate development and business at the University of Michigan the following year.

Since relocating to Pittsburgh, she has championed several initiatives for sustainable development projects in downtown Pittsburgh, augmented a public-private team endeavoring to bring passenger rail service to the Allegheny Riverfront, and most recently launched Marty's Market, a unique food market, café and coffeehouse in the Strip District dedicated to strengthening the southwestern PA food system.


Appetizers and snacks will be provided.
