Loree D. Jones, most recently the chief of staff to the chancellor of Rutgers University-Camden, will become the chief executive officer of Philabundance. The board of directors of the 35-year-old nonprofit made the announcement the afternoon of May 5.

Jones, who will assume the post June 2,  succeeds Glenn Bergman, who left the organization in March.

Before her work at Rutgers, Jones was chief of external affairs for the School District of Philadelphia. She also served as managing director for the City of Philadelphia during the John Street administration.

Jones also served as co-executive director of City Year Greater Philadelphia, and as executive director of the African Studies Association (ASA).  She currently serves on the board of directors of several nonprofits including the Philadelphia Health Partnership, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and the Independence Foundation.

“Loree has consistently delivered extraordinary results in the nonprofit and public sectors. The programs she has put in place have helped countless people throughout our region,” John Hollway, chair of the Philabundance board and associate dean at the University of Pennsylvania Law School said in the announcement.

Jones holds a bachelor’s degree from Spelman College and a master’s degree from Princeton University. As an Eisenhower Fellow, she studied how South African municipalities provide social services. She is an alumna of the British American Project, and was the first recipient of the Urban League of Philadelphia’s Whitney M. Young Jr. Young Leader Award.

“Philabundance has been a long-time leader in the fight against food insecurity for our region’s most vulnerable citizens. I’m honored to join this organization of passionate and talented professionals and its forward-looking board of directors,” Jones said in the announcement. “We have both opportunities and challenges ahead of us … We must address the immediate needs of Southeastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey and prepare Philabundance to serve as a resource and partner during the post-COVID rebuilding period and in the years to come.”
