JENNIFER FORD REEDY NAMED PRESIDENT OF BUSH FOUNDATION

Posted in All State of Minnesota

(SAINT PAUL, MINN., JULY 30, 2012) --The Board of Directors of the Bush Foundation announced today that Jennifer Ford Reedy will join the organization as its next president.

Reedy is the current chief of staff and vice president of strategy for Minnesota Philanthropy Partners [2] (MN Partners), a network of organizations including The Saint Paul Foundation, Minnesota Community Foundation, F.R. Bigelow Foundation and the Mardag Foundation.

"Over the past several months we have had a very thorough and thoughtful national search process and have taken the time necessary to find the best possible candidate," said Jan K. Malcolm, chair of the Bush Foundation's Board. "My Board colleagues and I were delighted to find in Jennifer Ford Reedy the experience, skills and vision that we believe are just the right formula to lead the Foundation."

Board Search Committee Chair Irving Weiser said, "This search process produced a large number of truly exceptional candidates from across the country, but within this excellent pool we were unanimous in our selection of Jennifer Ford Reedy. We are confident that she will bring to the Bush Foundation the leadership qualities needed for us to have a positive impact in communities across our region for years to come."

Reedy said, "The Bush Foundation has had tremendous impact in the communities it has served for nearly 60 years. I'm thrilled to join in that work and look forward to leading the Foundation toward even more significant community impact in the coming years."

Reedy joined MN Partners in 2008 and since has guided several innovative new ventures, including GiveMN.org [3], an online giving portal that has helped raise more than $50 million for Minnesota nonprofits. She was also instrumental in the creation of the Minnesota Idea Open [4], which engages citizens in creating solutions to tough problems.

Prior to joining MN Partners, Reedy directed the Itasca Project [5], an employer-led civic alliance focused on building a thriving economy and improved quality of life in the Twin Cities metro area. In 2009, Reedy was honored as a "40 Under 40" leader by the _Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal_. (Read more about her experience, board service and awards at the end of this release.)

Reedy succeeds Peter C. Hutchinson, who served as president from 2008 until January of this year. Robert H. Bruininks is currently serving as interim pres .....
