Foellinger Foundation Names New President
The Fort Wayne-based Foellinger Foundation has chosen Ed Kominowski as its next president. Kominowski begins his duties in August and will succeed Cheryl Taylor, who will remain on the foundation’s board of directors.
“Ed’s selection is the culmination of our strategic succession planning, which included a robust, national executive search. Our methodology was rigorous, and we are grateful for the dozens of qualified and inspired candidates who expressed interest in Foellinger Foundation and our role in Allen County,” said Michael Moellering, chair, Foellinger Foundation board of directors.
Kominowski has been president of the Community Foundation of Morgan County for the last six years and has also led Morgan County’s private Kendrick Foundation.
“Throughout my career, I have sought to promote the values of integrity, accountability, responsibility and results,” said Kominowski. “For years at Community Foundation of Morgan County, we have focused on the idea of ‘effective compassion’, that each individual has intrinsic dignity, as we seek to understand and address social needs. We are always stronger together, and as Helene Foellinger stated, ‘Whatever may be said about human beings, they are as a whole, a family.’”
