Lamb brings with her an exemplary track record of success in the private, non-profit, and government sectors. Most recently, Lamb served as Co-Executive Director of the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City (ICIC), a national non-profit organization. Founded and led by Harvard Business School professor, Michael E. Porter, ICIC's mission is to eliminate economic inequality in America's inner cities through private sector engagement. In this position, Lamb was responsible for developing and managing ICIC's programs, fundraising and managing the relationships with ICIC's donors and Board of Directors.
Before joining ICIC in 1996, Lamb was Manager of Administration for Fleet Investment Advisors, the investment management business line of the Fleet Financial Group (now Bank of America). From 1985 until 1991, she served as Assistant Secretary of Housing for Massachusetts where she managed most of the State's publicly and privately financed housing programs. Prior to that appointment, Lamb directed the Broadway Project in Louisville, KY, one of the nation's first public-private downtown redevelopment corporations.
"I am honored that Marcia has chosen to join the National Park Foundation where she will leverage her considerable experience coming from both the non-profit and corporate sectors," said NPF President Cipolla. "NPF has grown dramatically over the past several years, and we look to strong and proven leaders, such as Marcia, to help take us to the next level."
For over 20 years, Lamb has been a full member of the Urban Land Institute (ULI), the leading national organization of real estate professionals, and has served for several years as Vice Chair of the organization's Inner City Council. She has spoken and written about urban revitalization, served on ULI consulting teams to Los Angeles and Dallas, and developed a network of relationships with business leaders across the country. She serves on the Advisory Boards of the Rappaport Institute at the John F. Kennedy School at Harvard University and General Electric's Commercial and Industrial Development Enterprise Board.
"I am very excited about the challenging opportunity at the National Park Foundation to make such a difference in our country, and to be involved in something about which I am so very passionate," Lamb said.
