Chris Diebel has been named the executive director of the Theodore Roosevelt High School Foundation, a newly created position that coincides with the recent completion of a $3.32 million capital campaign for a new track, turf field and reimagined library. Diebel joined the foundation after serving as director of public affairs at the Iowa Business Council for nearly two years. Before that, he served as the managing director of public affairs at LPCA Public Strategies and as director of marketing for Orchestrate Hospitality. Diebel is also a founding partner of Bubba, the Southern comfort food restaurant in downtown Des Moines. Foundation President Kate Mead said Diebel’s experience will help the foundation build on the momentum of the recent campaign as the school enters its 100th year. “[His] significant background in community engagement will serve us well as we shape the future of Roosevelt High School by advancing and supporting the students, faculty, and alumni,” Mead said.
