The Senator Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs at Rutgers University–Camden, an institute for public policy issues impacting southern New Jersey, announced last week that Innovative’s Vice President, Consulting, Dan Foley, has been appointed to their advisory board. Dan is joined by two other regional leaders, Amy Obsorn, vice president and head of private banking for Republic Bank and Christina Renna, senior vice president at the Chamber of Commerce Southern New Jersey.
“It’s important for South Jersey to think and act regionally if we hope to balance our competing desires for growth with the preservation of the quality of life that makes South Jersey such an attractive place to live,” says Darren Spielman, executive director of the Rand Institute at Rutgers–Camden. “These individuals are committed to the Rand Institute’s mission to leverage Rutgers–Camden research expertise in order to bring together citizens and policy makers on behalf of South Jersey’s citizens.”
Dan, Amy and Christina will join their existing 26 member advisory board, consisting of leaders from a diverse range of sectors, all sharing the same commitment to advancing southern New Jersey through the research conducted at the Rutgers University-Camden policy center.
“I am very excited about joining the Rand Institute advisory board,” stated Dan. “I look forward to working alongside this dedicated board and providing guidance and support for their long-term success.”
