President of Community Foundation of Northern Illinois taking on new role
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
The president of the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois is retiring later this year and taking on a new role at the agency.
Gloria Lundin began her career as CFNIL in 1987 as its first paid employee. It was a time when the foundation managed $1 million in endowed assets.
Now, CFNIL offers scholarships from 80 endowments.
"Gloria has led with intelligence, energy and passion, and she is regarded as the 'face' of CFNIL," said Nancy Hyzer CFNIL Board Chair. "The Board of Trustees understood that they were replacing a leader who has been a visionary."
Lundin's retirement is effective Sept. 30.
The Board of Trustees named Jon Bates, the foundation's executive vice president, as Lundin's successor.
Lundin is planning to continue working with the foundation and will report to Bates supporting development and strategic giving beginning Oct. 1.
