The Pickaway County Community Foundation (PCCF) has named Alexis Conrad as the new executive director beginning January 1, 2023.
In her new role, Conrad will oversee and direct all aspects of PCCF, including fundraising, operations, management, and outreach to the community. She will work closely with the Pickaway County Community Foundation board of directors as well as being engaged with PCCF’s newest initiative, the Inspiration Station.
Jan Shannon who currently serves as the executive director for PCCF, recently announced her intent to retire at the end of the year. Shannon was named the executive
director for the foundation in 2016 and has impacted our community in tremendous ways. Her tireless work ethic, willingness to try new things and push outside of her comfort zone to better our community is unmatched. She has been instrumental with the support of her board in collaborating with county school foundations, working with nonprofits and donors, as well as educating community members and civic organizations on the “why” behind investing locally in PCCF.
“Jan has always been a well-respected leader not only with our board, but in our entire community,” said Jessica Mullins, PCCF board president. “We know she is looking forward to retirement but are confident she will still be an integral part of the building and development of the Inspiration Station. Her forward thinking and her ability to grow the foundation to what it is today is unmeasurable.”
Shannon has been dedicating time to prepare Conrad for her upcoming role. Conrad brings her expertise and insight through her current work at PCCF as the assistant executive director. She has been instrumental in her years of service at PCCF through planning and coordinating key fundraisers. Conrad’s accomplishments also include policy management, project development, social media management, and serving as the scholarship coordinator.
“Alexis is a positive, resourceful, and energetic leader. The board is excited to work with her as our new executive director and confident that PCCF will be well-positioned under her guidance to thrive for years to come,” noted Mullins.
When not working hard for our community, she enjoys spending time with her family and volunteering at her church. “This is a wonderful opportunity and an invigorating time to grow with PCCF,” stated Conrad. “You can feel the momentum of the great things this organization has achieved through the leadership of Jan and the board, and I’m excited to
continue to be a part of the growth of PCCF.”
The Pickaway County Community Foundation board is profoundly grateful for the dedication, wisdom, and expertise Shannon lent to the organization, and looks forward to her working closer with Conrad in the coming months.
