I am pleased to announce that the Board of Directors of a/e ProNet has selected Lynda Colucci as our next executive director. She will be assuming the position effective December 1 after her retirement from current employment. On behalf of the board and members of the Association, I am pleased that Lynda has agreed to be our executive director and utilize the strong foundation left by our current director to build an even better Association for years to come.
Lynda has more than 40 years of experience in professional liability insurance for the design profession. She is retiring from her position of Assistant Vice President & Regional Underwriting Manager, Professional Liability of the Starr Companies and she previously was with Diamond State Group and Lexington Insurance (AIG) as a professional liability underwriter. Lynda also has extensive experience serving as an officer and board member of various non-profit boards and professional associations.
Lynda stated, “I know I am following in some awesome footsteps. I was told once to take every chance you get in life because some things only come around once. We only regret those chances we didn’t take. I am most grateful for this chance to be your Executive Director. I am simply thrilled. I look very forward to the challenges and the opportunity to utilize my experience, skills and network to assist the Board and Membership with the missions and goals of a/e ProNet. As well, I cannot wait to meet all of you someday in person. I look forward to talking with each of you soon. It will be my pleasure to serve you. Thank you so so much.”
Dave Johnston, current executive director, will continue with the Association through 2020 to provide a smooth transition to the new executive director. Dave stated “I am so pleased that Lynda will be the third executive director; I am confident that she will be an effective leader of a/e ProNet and I will work with her to provide a smooth and easy transition into the position.”
President, a/e ProNet
