            The Northeast Texas Trail (NETT) Coalition, a non-profit organization that   advocates for the full development of the NETT, announces the hiring of Jack Neal as its first executive director. His hiring follows a successful fund drive to find an on-site administrator with the qualities necessary to complete the work required to finish out the entire Trail Project, that will run from Farmersville to New Boston.       

            Mr. Neal has an extensive background in media and marketing, having worked with several public broadcasting TV and radio stations across the country. According to Earl Erickson, president of the NETT Coalition, Neal also brings experience in working with non-profit boards, fund-raising, grant writing, and promotion of legislative goals, all of which were required for this position.

            He is an avid biker with experience in bike vacations to various long trails including the Blue Ridge Parkway, Woodlands Trail and the Katy Trail in Missouri. Mr. Neal has deep roots in Texas, having lived in Houston for years and is happy to back in the State.

          Neal said, “I am very excited to be in Paris and a part of what is a well-honed organization. The Trail Coalition, especially all the work that has been previously done, has resulted in a project that is assured success. I’m just happy to now be a part of it and I have hit the ground running.”
