Boston –The Boston Foundation has named Lisabeth Llewellyn as Chief Administrative Officer, overseeing human resources, information technology, and office and facilities management.

In addition, a new position of Director of Information Technology has been created, which will have responsibility for planning and managing the Foundation’s information systems, including its database. Michaela A. June, formerly an independent consultant, has been named to that position.

Grogan, President and CEO of the Boston Foundation.  “She will be responsible for keeping this organization at a high and consistent level of efficiency while she continues to raise the bar with respect to technology, putting her at the intersection of change and continuity. And the creation of a new position in Information Technology recognizes the growing importance that effective management of the Foundation’s deep knowledge of the region holds as we address the challenges and opportunities facing the region.”
