Franklin Kimbrough

Franklin D. "Kim" Kimbrough III is the current executive director of the Pensacola Downtown Improvement Board (DIB). He was selected from a pool of 23 candidates on September 10, 2004, filling a vacancy left by the June resignation of Wanda Enfinger, and began serving on September 15 — just days before Hurricane Ivan made landfall.[1][2] He also writes a regular column for the Downtown Crowd magazine.

A native of Baldwin County, Kimbrough received a bachelor's degree from the University of South Alabama and a master's degree from the University of Mississippi. He was previously the president and CEO of the Portland Business Alliance in Oregon; president and CEO of the Downtown St. Louis Partnership in Missouri; director of the Department of Downtown Development in Franklin, Virginia; and main street manager of the Panama City DIB in 1985. He is married with two children.
