The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia is welcoming new members to its Board of Directors. Lynn Tadlock, deputy executive director for the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation, will become chair of the board of directors at the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia with the start of the fiscal year on July 1, 2013.
Tadlock joined the Community Foundation’s board of directors three years ago and has served on the Executive Committee and Strategic Planning Committee. She also served as the Loudoun County initiatives liaison to the board and led the creation of the Loudoun Impact Fund. Tadlock spent the last year as vice chair of the board and will be replacing David Young, president of Titania Solutions Group and CFO of Tanom Motors, as chair of the board of directors, bringing an end to Young’s chairmanship of three years.
“As chair of the board of directors, I am looking forward to improving the regional impact and outreach of the Community Foundation,” said Tadlock. “Northern Virginia has such a diverse and culturally rich population, I believe that when we act together, there is little we cannot accomplish.”
Paul Leslie, CEO of Dovel Technologies, will become the board’s Vice Chair. Leslie has served on the board for four years, serving on the Executive Committee and the Grants Committee, which he has chaired through four consecutive cycles of Community Investment Fund grant-making. In addition, the Community Foundation has welcomed three new members to its board of directors in the past year, including:
- Brandon H. Elledge, partner with Holland & Knight
- Susan F. Nolan, former chief information officer for Perot Systems Corporation, who is now retired and serves as an active community volunteer
- Marc K. Wishkoff, managing director with Chevy Chase Trust Investment Advisors
Richard Duvall is stepping down due to the board’s term limits, after nine years on the board of directors. Duvall served as chair of the board and participated in multiple committees, providing continuous support and leadership for the Community Foundation.
“Our board is made up of dynamic individuals who each bring a unique set of skills and experiences to the table,” said Eileen Ellsworth, president of the Community Foundation. “As we welcome new members, we must also acknowledge the tremendous impact that has been made by Dick Duvall. His time and immeasurable dedication as a board member has truly made the Community Foundation a better organization.”
