The nonprofit group Peel Compton Foundation in Bentonville has hired Kelly Kemp-McLintock as interim director of development.

Kemp-McLintock was the top fundraiser for The Jones Center in Springdale for nearly 20 years until resigning last year. She is replacing Jennifer Martinez Belt, the previous development director.

Kemp-McLintock was awarded the 2014 Outstanding Fundraising Executive by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Northwest Arkansas Chapter. Before her work in development, she spent 15 years in the broadcast television news industry as a news anchor for KFSM-TV, Northwest Arkansas’ CBS affiliate.

“I’m thrilled to welcome Kelly to the Peel Compton team. Her successful reputation as a true nonprofit professional precedes her. She has a deep knowledge and understanding of philanthropy and community outreach in the NWA community,” executive director Debra Layton said in a statement.

The Peel Compton Foundation was founded in 1992 and oversees Bentonville community spaces – Peel Museum & Botanical Garden, Compton Gardens & Arboretum, Coler Mountain Bike Preserve, and Osage Park.
