Posted January 07, 2018 07:13:00 An older man who used to work as a bouncer at Portland’s Route 66 attraction has become the executive director of the Oregon Parks & Recreation Department.

Michael Krummenger, 56, was named the agency’s executive director last month, making him the first African American to hold the job.

Krummensger said he didn’t want to be a distraction for the people who are here.

“They love us,” he said.

Krummensgers hiring came on the heels of a string of recent high-profile promotions.

Earlier this month, the agency added a second African American woman to its leadership team.

In May, the city awarded Krummansgers the 2017 Northwest Area Achievement Award.
