FLEMINGTON, NJ – Flemington Community Partnership has named its new Executive Director, who will start next week and replace Judy Goodwin.
Ann Meredith was selected after a review of more than 70 candidates, according to Paul Marciano, FCP Chair.
“We are confident that Ann is precisely the innovative, mission-driven and results-oriented leader to continue to build the great momentum FCP has generated in just one short year,” Marciano said in a press release.
Meredith was selected by Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell to serve as CEO of Lights of Liberty, a non-profit that produced Historic Philadelphia’s $15 million sound and light show attraction and operated a visitor and retail center.
While leading Lights of Liberty, Meredith also organized business and civic leaders to create the non-profit Independence Mall Business and Residents Coalition.
Meredith was the first CEO of the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania, and merged a staff of 150 employees, nine camps, 40,000 volunteers, 45,000 girl members, five service centers and three organizational cultures to create one entity. She also collaborated with the national cookie supplier to create the nation’s first “Online Cookie Locator ”— featured in Forbes and BusinessWeek — an innovation that resulted in increased sales and changed selling practices nationwide.
“I am thrilled to be joining FCP at a time of so much positive growth and look forward to working with the all of the stakeholders to making Flemington’s exciting, prosperous future a reality,” said Meredith.
