CEO, The WRK Group
Logan Herring is the CEO of The WRK Group (The Warehouse, REACH Riverside, and Kingswood Community Center). Raised in Wilmington's West Center City neighborhood, Logan knows that other people helped guide him to success, and his goal is to now, pay-it forward.
Logan started his work in the Riverside neighborhood of Wilmington in 2016 as the Executive Director for Kingswood Community Center (KCC), which serves the young and old alike, including an early learning academy, before and after care, and senior center.
REACH Riverside (Redevelopment Education and Community Health), is a non-profit community development corporation created to lead the $575 million revitalization of the Riverside neighborhood under the nationally acclaimed, and Warren Buffett funded, Purpose Built Communities model, to include 700-units of mixed-income housing and a new state of the art KCC; REACH has been officially named as the nineteenth of twenty-eight network affiliates of Purpose-Built Communities.
REACH and KCC are working in partnership with The Warehouse, a co-working facility and network for teen-serving organizations designed to address violence, academic performance, and workforce readiness amongst Wilmington’s youth by providing them with access to more than 150 teen-focused program and service providers. Capital One donated the former 43,000 square foot Prestige Academy building, and The Warehouse invested $3 million of renovations into the facility, transforming it to a modern, open-floor concept designed “for teens, by teens”. Since opening its doors, The Warehouse has welcomed nearly 1,430 teens as members, and over 300 have been employed by the teen community center since 2021.
Logan holds a Bachelor of Arts in Business Management from Goucher College and a certificate in Non-Profit Leadership from Boston College. In 2018, Logan was recognized in the Delaware Business Times 40 Under 40. In 2021, Logan was twice recognized as one of Delaware Online’s Most Influential Delawareans, named CEO of the Year for Large Nonprofits by Delaware Business Times, and was honored by receiving the Delaware Business Leaders Hall of Fame by Junior Achievement.
Additionally in 2021, Logan received the Lieutenant Governor's Wellness Leadership Award for innovation in the workplace by addressing staff's mental health and well-being. Logan was also recognized by Action for Delaware's Children, for outstanding work on behalf of children in Delaware. Most recently, Logan was honored by his alma mater, Goucher College, with the Marguerite Barland '60 Merit Award, which celebrates alumni who in their professional and private life has significantly contributed to the diversity of campus community through leadership—as a mentor, role model, volunteer, or philanthropic supporter of the college.
