Parks & People CEO, Lisa Schroeder, has accepted an opportunity to serve as President and CEO of The Pittsburgh Foundation, one of the nation’s largest community foundations. Lisa will remain in her current position as leader of the PPF until May 1, 2019.

Of this change, Board of Directors Chair, Matthew Kostmayer, said it best: “the people of Baltimore have benefited tremendously from Lisa’s talent and vision. Under her leadership, the Parks & People Foundation has continued to build on the record of excellence and service to our community that it has shown since its founding. While we are sorry to see her go, we recognize what an outstanding opportunity this represents for a professional and leader of Lisa’s caliber.”

The executive committee of the Parks & People Board of Directors has installed Dr. Franklin Lance as interim CEO while a national search for a replacement is underway.
