OFN has announced that after five and a half years of dedicated service, Lori Chatman, chair of the OFN board of directors and president of Enterprise Community Loan Fund, has decided to resign from OFN’s board of directors and to step down from her board chair position. Jim King, who was formerly vice chair of the board of directors and is CEO and president of Fahe, has been appointed as her successor. The change is effective immediately. Chatman’s board seat will be up for re-election at OFN’s annual membership meeting in September.
“I thank Lori for her significant contributions to OFN—she is one of the great stars of our network and her guidance and insight has been invaluable to OFN,” said Lisa Mensah, OFN President and CEO. “Lori provided great leadership during a time of important change in the organization and growth in the industry. She helped OFN to advance our mission and positively impacted the trajectory of OFN and the field.”
