A developer with a South Elm Street resume has been brought aboard as business development manager at Revolution Mill District, the former Cone Mills campus being redeveloped by Self-Help Ventures Fund.
Nick Piornack will be charged with forming partnerships and increasing exposure for the 45-acre property that also includes the neighboring Olympic Mills building.
"We're delighted to have Nick's energy, his commitment to Greensboro, and his ability to forge productive partnerships that will catalyze investment and create a new destination that people from across the Triad can enjoy," said Micah Kordsmeier, development manager for Revolution Mill.
Piornack, a managing partner of Raleigh-based Momentum Development Partners, has seen success in downtown within the last several years with the redevelopment of buildings off of South Elm Street into restaurants WORX and Spice Cantina as well as the event space, The Rail Yard.
Piornack serves on the board of Downtown Greensboro Inc. and was named the group's "Man of the Year" last year for his work on South Elm. He is also a founding member of the South End Neighborhood Group which is working on historic preservation in downtown.
