New York, NY — Community Resource Exchange (CRE) is excited to welcome Ed Henry, President and CEO of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF), to the CRE Board of Directors.

Ed has led the DDCF, which supports programs in child well-being, medical research, environment and performing arts, since 2009. He also serves as the head of several operating foundations under DDCF’s umbrella. Prior to his role leading DDCF, he was an associate dean at Columbia Business School and has held senior administrative positions with a number of nonprofit institutions. Ed was a David Rockefeller fellow with the Partnership for New York City and started his career in NYC as a dancer, performing across the United States and abroad and serving in the Artists-in-Schools program.

“We are thrilled to have Ed join our Board. His extensive knowledge and experience will be invaluable as we move forward, and will help us achieve even greater impact for our nonprofit clients and the communities they serve. Ed understands the challenges facing our sector today and brings an informed perspective that will help CRE grow its reach in New York City and beyond. We are excited to partner with Ed as we support and strengthen even more social change organizations working to reduce poverty, promote equity, and increase opportunity,” said Katie Leonberger, President and CEO of CRE.

“It is an honor to join with CRE in its work to help strengthen the capacity of organizations providing services and opportunities to under-resourced communities. The organizations assisted by CRE are providing critical assistance to our most vulnerable neighbors. The success of these organizations is key to improving the lives of people in need,” said Ed.
