Who We Are 

Renaissance Covington socially and economically activates downtown Covington by fostering community efforts and partnerships concentrating on organization, promotion, design, economic vitality, and creative enterprise for everyone so that Downtown Covington continues to evolve as a vibrant community rich with bold entrepreneurial spirit, diversity, history, and creative culture.

Renaissance Covington began in 2003, as a City of Covington program, but the organization grew into its own 501c(3) nonprofit in 2015 under the leadership of Executive Director, Katie Meyer,  and its Board of Directors  comprised of local business owners, residents, and employees.  In 2019, as Renaissance Covington entered it’s 4th year as an independent nonprofit, we welcomed Nick Wade as our next Executive Director.
