About Brian M. Zimmerman, Cleveland Metroparks Chief Executive Officer
As Chief Executive Officer of Cleveland Metroparks, Brian Zimmerman is responsible for the management of over 23,600 acres of green space including 18 park reservations, eight golf courses, and nationally acclaimed Zoo.
Under Brian’s leadership, the Park District continued the highest rate of land acquisition under any Cleveland Metroparks leader in the park’s 102-year history aside from founder William Stinchcomb. Since Brian assumed the role of CEO in 2010, the Park District has acquired more than 2,400 acres for preservation and conservation. The park growth also includes the acquisition and transformation of nearly 750 acres of lakefront beaches and property into safe, clean and beautiful attractions for the community helping to revitalize Cleveland’s urban core.
He has improved partnerships with local and federal governments as well as community stakeholders and under his leadership the Park District has secured more than $150 million in external grants and donations. The awards include the $8 million federal TIGER grant, the largest federal award to Cleveland Metroparks, that is connecting critical gaps in Cleveland’s transportation network and improving access to underserved communities.
Brian has worked to expand park access to all communities through strategic acquisitions and new trails including more than 12.6 miles of paved trails and 26 miles of natural surface trails that add to Cleveland Metroparks now more than 300 miles of trails across Northeast Ohio.
His efforts have been recognized nationally through several agency awards including the 2016 National Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Park Management by National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the highest national honor in parks and recreation.
As CEO of Cleveland Metroparks, Brian also has overseen the transformation of Cleveland Metroparks Zoo into a nationally-recognized facility for animal care and wildlife conservation. Under his leadership, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and non-profit Cleveland Zoological Society have invested $35 million in larger and more complex animal habitats, including African Elephant Crossing, Rosebrough Tiger Passage and, most recently, Asian Highlands.
In addition to his role with Cleveland Metroparks, Zimmerman serves on several boards including Destination Cleveland, Cleveland Neighborhood Progress, Flats Forward, and Northeast Ohio Sustainability Community Consortium. Brian has been recognized as the 2018 National Association of County Park and Recreation Officials (NACPRO) Professional Fellow Award, Crain’s Cleveland Business 2017 CEO of the Year, a finalist for Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year, Smart Business Smart 50 Honoree & Impact Award, 2016 "Professional of the Year" by the Ohio Parks and Recreation Association. He has also been recognized for five consecutive years as a member of Northeast Ohio’s “Power 100” among most influential CEOs, politicians and civic leaders.
Zimmerman, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, assumed the role of CEO in 2010, making him the sixth head of Cleveland Metroparks in its 100-year history. He previously served as Chief of Operations for the Milwaukee County Parks, Recreation and Culture department.
Zimmerman enjoys golf, traveling, especially to see Big 10 college football games, and spending time with his family, including wife Jill, son Carter and their Weimaraner, Eli, at their home in Strongsville. He is also an avid sports fan and enjoys hiking and boating.

Please join our next book club discussion!!
For the November Cleveland Professional 20/30 book club, we will be discussing "Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World" by David Epstein.
"The #1 New York Times bestseller that has all America talking: as seen/heard on Morning Joe, CBS This Morning, The Bill Simmons Podcast, Rich Roll, and more.
Shortlisted for the Financial Times/McKinsey Business Book of the Year Award
“The most important business—and parenting—book of the year.” —Forbes
“Urgent and important. . . an essential read for bosses, parents, coaches, and anyone who cares about improving performance.” —Daniel H. Pink
“So much crucial and revelatory information about performance, success, and education.” —Susan Cain, bestselling author of Quiet
“As David Epstein shows us, cultivating range prepares us for the wickedly unanticipated… a well-supported and smoothly written case on behalf of breadth and late starts.” —Wall Street Journal
Plenty of experts argue that anyone who wants to develop a skill, play an instrument, or lead their field should start early, focus intensely, and rack up as many hours of deliberate practice as possible. If you dabble or delay, you’ll never catch up to the people who got a head start. But a closer look at research on the world’s top performers, from professional athletes to Nobel laureates, shows that early specialization is the exception, not the rule.
David Epstein examined the world’s most successful athletes, artists, musicians, inventors, forecasters and scientists. He discovered that in most fields—especially those that are complex and unpredictable—generalists, not specialists, are primed to excel. Generalists often find their path late, and they juggle many interests rather than focusing on one. They’re also more creative, more agile, and able to make connections their more specialized peers can’t see.
Provocative, rigorous, and engrossing, Range makes a compelling case for actively cultivating inefficiency. Failing a test is the best way to learn. Frequent quitters end up with the most fulfilling careers. The most impactful inventors cross domains rather than deepening their knowledge in a single area. As experts silo themselves further while computers master more of the skills once reserved for highly focused humans, people who think broadly and embrace diverse experiences and perspectives will increasingly thrive."
Please join us to discuss the book on November 11th at Red Lantern, I will be there a few minutes early and will place the book on a table for recognition. firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Please join our next book club discussion!!
For the April Cleveland Professional 20/30 book club, we will be discussing Cal Newport's "Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World"
"A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Publishers Weekly, and USA Today bestseller
"Newport is making a bid to be the Marie Kondo of technology: someone with an actual plan for helping you realize the digital pursuits that do, and don't, bring value to your life."--Ezra Klein, Vox
Minimalism is the art of knowing how much is just enough. Digital minimalism applies this idea to our personal technology. It's the key to living a focused life in an increasingly noisy world.In this timely and enlightening book, the bestselling author of Deep Work introduces a philosophy for technology use that has already improved countless lives."
Please join us to discuss the book on April 9th at Griffin Cider House. I will be there a few minutes early and will place the book on the table upstairs for recognition. Contact email@example.com with questions.

Tartine Bistro opened in July of 2008 with the intention of providing a little slice of Paris in the heart of Rocky River. Since then, the little cheese and wine bar has grown to incorporate a full kitchen and an extensive wine list under the supervision of brothers Michael and BJ Grieve. Michael, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy took over as Executive Chef in the spring of 2016 and has revitalized and re-worked the entire concept. BJ, who studied under some of the best sommeliers in San Diego and San Francisco, has taken the wine list and service to whole new levels, offering an eclectic collection of bottles and glass pours. What was once the local spot to enjoy some small snacks and a glass of wine has become the go to destination in Rocky River for some of the most inventive fare and finest service in the city of Cleveland.
