BATH — A send-off party was held at the Bath Freight Shed on Sept. 13 for Main Street Bath Director Jake Korb, who is leaving the position for one at the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.

Korb has been the director of Main Street Bath, a nonprofit that supports downtown businesses, for about two years, managing the organization through a period of growth for the city. During his tenure, the downtown has seen the development of multiple properties and businesses.

“We are going to miss Jake and how much he has brought to Bath,” said Sherry Owen, board member of Main Street Bath.

Korb said he’s enjoyed his time in Bath, and whoever his replacement is will have a positive community to work in.

“There are so many people here who care about everyone and the community,” he said. “This is a crowd that will support them and the community and bring in and take hold of all the opportunities there are.”

He added that he’s appreciated his time at Main Street Bath and the opportunity he’s had. “I’ve grown incredibly as a professional here.”

Now, he’s going to be the manager of donor relations for the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. It’ll give him an opportunity to return to the city where he attended college, one he has “loved forever.”

His final day will be Sept. 15.
