The CEO will replace Ira Schwartz, who left the top post at Philadelphia’s central fundraising body on May 3. Alex Stroker, who had been the Federation’s COO, is now serving as the organization’s interim CEO.
The search committee, appointed by Federation president Sherrie Savett, includes past and current lay leaders of Federation. In addition to Savett and Lachs, the committee members are: Gary Erlbaum, Mark Fishman, Robert Fox, Laurie Franz, Richard Green, Marjorie Honickman, Matthew Kamens, Roy Neff, Bud Newman, Gail Norry, Tony Schneider and Murray Spain.
Darrell Friedman, a Jewish organizational consultant who served for 17 years as the CEO of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore, is serving as consultant to the search process.
