Leading Ladies 2019: Alison N. Izzi

Finance Manager, Providence Downtown Improvement District


Alison Izzi is passionate about Downtown Providence, and the mission of the PROVIDENCE DOWNTOWN IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT (DID). “Our mission is to continuously enhance the quality of life Downtown,” she says. “I feel beyond fortunate to love what I do.”

Described as extremely effective and competent, Alison manages all aspects of a $1.2 million budget for the Downtown Providence District Management Authority, which provides supplemental City services to the immediate downtown area. “It’s wonderful to have this opportunity and to be able to engage with this community. It’s really a perfect job that allows me to utilize all my skills.”

Alison earned her Bachelor’s in Business Administration and Master’s in Accounting and Finance – both from Johnson & Wales University. She worked in admissions upon graduating, and then transitioned to public accounting where she worked as a CPA at local and national firms. Alison took some time away from her career to raise her family, a decision she calls her proudest achievement. She’s been with the DID for the past seven years, and continues to be inspired by “our small office with a big impact.”

Known for their bright yellow and black uniforms, the Clean and Safe Team is the DID’s most visible program. The streetscaping team focuses on keeping streets, sidewalks, public spaces and much more clean through a variety of initiatives including weeding, sidewalk sweeping, emptying of trash cans, and graffiti removal. The year-round team embraces each season and its challenges and opportunities, from snow shoveling curbs and decorating with wreaths in the winter, to addressing potholes and installing flowers in the spring.

“It’s an exciting team and an exciting time to be a part of it. 2019 is going to be a great year downtown.” Alison says. “There’s lots of new development and there’s always exciting things happening in our vibrant City.”
