Welcome Megan Hyman as new CEO

As you know, in January, Foundation CEO Meyer Bodoff, of blessed memory, announced his retirement plans. Thereafter, the Foundation initiated a national search for his successor — and this search was well underway at the time of Meyer’s death in May. This search has now concluded with the naming of Megan Hyman as the next Foundation CEO.
We are extremely confident that Megan Hyman will be a worthy CEO successor to Meyer. She brings to the CEO position more than 15 years of experience with J.P. Morgan, including service as both a private and commercial banker and as a business manager. Her work at J.P. Morgan included advising individuals, families, and foundations across the full spectrum of wealth management services, including legacy and estate planning, governance, and strategic philanthropy. During the 10 years that she was based in Dallas, Megan became actively involved in the Jewish community. Her volunteer experiences have included service on the Foundation's Investment Committee, the Congregation Shearith Israel Board and its Foundation Board, and multiple committees within the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas, as well as participation in the Schultz Family Leadership Fellows program. Megan looks forward to deepening her engagement within the Dallas Jewish community in this new role.
Thus, Megan brings to the Foundation CEO position both impressive professional experience and deep knowledge of our Dallas Jewish and general community. With her outstanding leadership, our Foundation will continue to advance its critical work on behalf of our community and move from strength to strength.
Megan will begin work at the Foundation on September 12. We know that you join us in welcoming her back to Dallas and to her new CEO role.
