A new leadership team at the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation was unveiled today with a new chief executive officer and seven new board members, including present and former legislators and elected officials, lobbyists, and business and labor leaders.
The board chairman is retired New Jersey Air National Guard Major General Clark Matin, the president emeritus of MBI Gluck Shaw, a Trenton lobbying firm. Amy Osborn, a former special events director for the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, is the CEO.
The new board members include: Assemblywoman Aura Dunn (R-Mendham), the daughter of a Vietnam veteran who fought in the Battle of Khe Sahn; Monmouth County Clerk Christine Hanlon; William Sproule, the executive secretary-treasurer of the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Carpenters and the son of a Vietnam veteran killed in action; Frank Luna, a former Army National Guard infantryman and a regional external affairs consultant for JCP&L; cannabis executive Beth Stavola; and former Time executive vice president Stephanie George.
“The members of the Board of Trustees are distinguished professionals who range in their careers and experiences, but share a dedicated commitment to honoring and memorializing New Jersey’s Vietnam veterans,” said Martin. “We are fortunate to have such an outstanding and dynamic group of individuals joining our Board during this exciting period of transformation for the Memorial.”
