The Annie E. Casey Foundation Board of Trustees today announced that Lisa Hamilton will become the Foundation’s next president and chief executive officer effective Jan. 1, 2019. Hamilton is the Foundation’s executive vice president and chief program officer.

“We are fortunate to have someone with Lisa’s experience and vision step into this important role,” said Michael Eskew, chair of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees. “Lisa is an enormously talented leader who brings a deep understanding of the needs of kids and families, and she is the ideal leader to build on the terrific accomplishments of Patrick McCarthy. Her ability to use research and data to develop innovative strategies, and to partner with communities and decision makers to spread what works, will enable the Foundation to help all children realize their potential.”
