Aaaaand we’re back with our semi-regular roundup of local professional power moves!

Without further ado:

1. Rebecca Lopez Kriss moved within city government

The former StartupPHL head left her most recent post as the Department of Commerce’s director of marketing and communications to become the Department of Revenue’s senior policy analyst last October.

2. Amy Seasholtz is the interim ED at Philanthropy Network

In November, Maari Porter left her leadership post to return to city government. Seasholtz is now at the helm, at least temporarily, after serving in various roles (most recently as director of communications) in her 24 years at the nonprofit, which connects and offers resources to regional funders.

3. Corinne Lagermasini is replacing Roberta L. Hacker at Women in Transition

Hacker announced this fall she would be retiring from her role as WIT’s executive director, a position she held for 30 years. Lagermasini previously served as prevention director at the Center City nonprofit, which serves women experiencing domestic violence and substance abuse.

4. Theatre Philadelphia found its first director in Leigh Goldenberg

The theatre marketing nonprofit, which administers the annual Barrymore Awards, hired its first executive director earlier this month. Goldenberg has previously worked with a host of local socially minded and arts and culture organizations in the city, including Wash Cycle LaundryArden Theatre Company, Tiny Dynamite and Public Citizens for Children and Youth.
