New player at major local foundation

The William Penn Foundation, a big supporter of regional nonprofits, has a new head, Feather O'Connor Houstoun (pardon me, but Feather??). The newcomer has an impressive (and intriguing) resume:
Prior to joining AmeriChoice, Houstoun was a senior visiting scholar at the University of Pennsylvania. She served as Pennsylvania's secretary of public welfare under former Gov. Tom Ridge, New Jersey treasurer under former Gov. Tom Kean, chief financial officer of SEPTA, and in a number of senior positions with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Certainly a heavy-hitter! Good broad experience for an organization that supports eduction, environmental, and arts organizations . . .
