1. Christine Stutman, executive director of Lutheran Settlement House

The Fishtown nonprofit announced on Thursday that Stutman, who was most recently the associate executive director of adult behavioral health services at Northwest Human Services, would replace recently departed ED Kelly Davis. Stutman has also served in leadership positions at Congreso and Women Against Abuse. Wanna meet her? LSH is hosting a meet-and-greet at its HQ this Tuesday at 5:30 p.m.

2. Ceciley Bradford-Jones, executive director of the Office of Reintegration Services

The criminal justice and reentry expert moved from the Center for Employment Opportunities to R.I.S.E. shortly after we talked with her last month. In her new position with the city, she’s connecting returning citizens with education opportunities and jobs.

3. Lansie Sylvia, senior strategist at J2 Design

Next Stop: Democracy! founder, former Here’s My Chance communicator and columnist extraordinaire Sylvia recently took her strategy prowess to the socially minded creative agency, where she’ll support partnerships with local and national nonprofits. Don’t worry, you’ll still be seeing her around these parts.

4. Jon Geeting, director of engagement at Philadelphia 3.0

Getting, the former engagement editor at PlanPhilly and a co-organizer of Open Streets PHL, recently made the jump to politics by joining Philadelphia 3.0. The nonprofit and PAC has a goal of “creating a more competitive city by building a local government that works for residents and businesses.”

5. Sandy Salzman, retiring from NKCDC

As we reported earlier this week, the longtime executive director of the River Wards-based community development corporation, is moving on after 21 years at the helm. And yes, we’ll be interviewing her soon for Moving On.
