Steve Buie and Tina Boyes
Tina Boyes is a 20+ year marketing and communications veteran who uses her skills to improve life in Akron’s Kenmore neighborhood.
In 2017, Tina chaired the Kenmore Better Block, a two-day popup event that transformed three blocks of Kenmore Boulevard into a walkable, bikeable, vibrant cultural space where neighbors and visitors could gather and where businesses could thrive.

Tina is working to make permanent improvements to the area as executive director of Kenmore Neighborhood Alliance, a nonprofit community development corporation focused on creating an enjoyable, engaging Boulevard experience. This work involves building on the Boulevard District's existing assets, including five recording studios, two guitar shops, an internationally known guitar luthier and The Rialto Theatre, a former movie theater that now serves as a live music and theater venue.

Before her community development work, Tina served for 13 years as the vice president of marketing and communications at Akron Community Foundation. She and her family live in Kenmore, where she is a closet karaoke queen and air-guitar junkie.
Tina is married to Ryan and is a graduate of Leadership Akron Class 32.

She currently serves on the City of Akron Planning Commission, Akron Civic Commons Core Team, United Way Community Investment Task Force, Summit Lake Community Council and is a past president of the Public Relations of America Akron Chapter.
