NBT Elects New Board Chair
POSTED December 19, 2012
New Brunswick, NJ – At its 37th annual meeting of the board of directors, New Brunswick Tomorrow unanimously elected Mr. Mitchell “Micky” Landis as its new chair. Mr. Landis succeeds Dr. Christopher M. Cimarusti, a retired senior executive from Bristol-Myers Squibb. After serving for seven years, Dr. Cimarusti announced earlier in the year his intention to retire from the position once his term expired. Before Dr. Cimarusti, only three other individuals have held the Chair position, beginning with NBT founder and Johnson & Johnson executive John J. Heldrich, followed by Christian C. Kjeldsen, also from Johnson & Johnson, and Rosie Saez from Wells Fargo.
Mr. Landis, who has served as a board member since 2005, is a Senior Vice President and Regional Manager for Boston Properties. In addition, Mr. Landis has a long history of serving on non-profit boards and advocating for charitable causes. Presently, he serves on the boards of the Raritan Valley Workshop, The Parkinson Alliance, Highland Park Redevelopment Agency, and the Jewish Social Service Committee. In accepting the position of Chair of New Brunswick Tomorrow, Mr. Landis said, “I am honored to be selected to help continue the outstanding tradition of New Brunswick Tomorrow. In a city that has been nationally recognized as a model for redevelopment, New Brunswick’s future still includes many challenges. New Brunswick Tomorrow will continue to focus on creating and implementing social programs which target the neediest citizens.”
Jeffrey Vega, President of New Brunswick Tomorrow, stated, “I am looking forward to working with Micky. His leadership, talent and partnership will contribute greatly to the organization’s mission.” New Brunswick Tomorrow is the non-profit organization whose ideas, partnerships and initiatives are moving New Brunswick’s people forward. The organization focuses on health, human service and educational initiatives that help residents achieve self-sufficiency and upward economic mobility.
The board also elected three other officers, including retired judge Roger Daley and Rev. Vicente Martinez as its two Vice Chairs, and Ms. Elizabeth Hance of United Way of Central Jersey, as the Treasurer/Secretary.
