Great Pond Foundation Announces Leadership Changes: 

The Board of Directors of the Great Pond Foundation has announced the following.

  • Emily Reddington, formerly Director of Science and Education, has been named Executive Director, a new position, reporting to the Board of Directors. In this position, Emily has overall responsibility for management of the Foundation.
  • Tom Wallace, President of the Foundation for more than 15 years, has resigned from the board due to other demands on his time and his limited availability.
  • Dave Luening has been elected President, replacing Tom Wallace. Dave has been a member of the board since creation of the Foundation in 1998, served as Treasurer for 10 years, and as vice president since 2012.
  • Curt Greer has been elected to the Board of Directors. We welcome Curt, a longtime seasonal resident with broad experience and a strong commitment to preservation of Edgartown Great Pond.

All of those who care about Edgartown Great Pond are beneficiaries of the vision, foresight, and leadership that Tom Wallace has devoted to this effort over many years.  At this point, we are fortunate that Emily Reddington brings to us a unique combination of skills in the areas of science, management, and communications that will be increasingly important going forward.  –  Dave Luening, GPF President

The Great Pond Foundation was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit organization devoted to enhancing the health and beauty of Edgartown Great Pond. Its goals are to educate the public, assist the Town of Edgartown, and collaborate with others to enhance the health of the Edgartown Great Pond through science, research, and education.
