John comes to Neighborhood Falmouth with a wealth of nonprofit management, having served as the Executive Director of many well-known organizations, including the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museums, Battleship Cove Museum, and Plimoth Plantation. He has also held senior level positions at the Smithsonian Institution, The Boston Foundation, The Detroit Institute of Arts, and Georgetown University.

Among his responsibilities at the Neighborhood Falmouth will be to start an endowment and a planned gift program, both which should add to the financial long-term stability of the beloved organization; increase membership and volunteer participation; and deepen the organization’s partnerships across the area.

Neighborhood Falmouth is a community-based non-profit membership organization whose mission is to help seniors live independently, safely, and comfortably at home for as long as is practical by providing support, information and services. NF opened its doors in 2009 and since then has served more than 300 Falmouth Seniors using the time and talents of over 300 volunteers to help older residents with transportation, grocery shopping, home maintenance tasks, and social connection. Since its inception, Neighborhood Falmouth has provided more than 25,000 services to local Seniors.

John lives in Sandwich with his wife, JoAnn, and their Yorkie, Lucy. They have three grown daughters. John succeeds Susan Loucks who led Neighborhood Falmouth since 2014 and is retiring.
