New leadership drives SPEF's mission, vision and core values
Effective January 1, SPEF’s long-time CEO, Matthew Quinones, stepped down from his position to join Stamford Mayor Caroline Simmons’ cabinet as the City’s Director of Operations. SPEF’s Board of Directors has appointed Programs Director Lindsay Wyman as the Foundation’s Interim CEO:
“On behalf of the SPEF Board of Directors, I want to thank Matt for his selfless service to SPEF and the youth of Stamford. Under Matt’s leadership, SPEF has experienced significant growth and has had a profound impact on Stamford Public Schools’ students and their families. He will be missed.
However, as we head into the new year, we are very pleased to announce the appointment of Lindsay Wyman. During her tenure with SPEF, Lindsay has greatly impacted SPEF’s programming in support of the Stamford community and its richly diverse education environment. She brings a combination of leadership, passion for equity in education, vision, and creativity to SPEF's programs.”
- Michael Zanga, President of SPEF's Board of Directors
