Marvin Edwards Joins PKB Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors continues to grow as we welcome Marvin Edwards, manager of the Point Park Marketplace. Marvin has been at the Marketplace for four years and has had many accomplishments such as managing the High Mark Community Garden, teaming up with Full Circle Yoga to bring yoga to downtown on Wednesday evenings starting in May, the soon to be relocation of The Rustic House from Vienna to the Marketplace and the recent purchase of Maka Mia Pizza in February! As a new board member, we took time to sit down with Marvin to learn more about joining our board and what it means for a small business owner.

Q: What about Downtown PKB appealed to you about joining our Board of Directors?
A: I think it’s a great opportunity to participate in growing our downtown community.

Q: What is your favorite part about serving on Downtown PKB’s Board?

Q: As a small business, how does Downtown PKB support you?
