A commercial real estate broker and chief of staff to former Mayor Hal Daub is set to be the next member of the Omaha Planning Board.
Brinker Harding was nominated by Mayor Jean Stothert to fill the seat of Thomas Kelly, whose term ends Dec. 23. The Omaha City Council will vote on the nomination at its meeting Tuesday.
Harding has worked for Colliers International since 2000. He served as Daub's chief of staff from 1998 to 2000 and was Daub's economic development director.
More recently, Harding helped direct Stothert's transition team after she was elected mayor. Stothert nominated Harding to serve on the recently completed city charter convention, and he was selected as the chairman.
“I'm excited the mayor has asked me to serve on the board,” Harding said. “My background and my job experience will certainly help that a lot.”
If appointed, Harding would serve on the board through Dec. 22, 2018.
