Lori Braunstein stepping down as president of Sustainable Cherry Hill


Since leading Sustainable Cherry Hill through six successful years and establishing the group as a leading voice for sustainability in South Jersey communities and beyond, founder Lori Braunstein is stepping away from everyday operations of the non-profit organization.

Under Braunstein’s leadership, Sustainable Cherry Hill’s outreach and development of grass roots energy has engaged thousands of people around the importance of opportunities created by building more sustainable communities. These efforts have been instrumental in leading to Sustainable Jersey certification for Cherry Hill along with other municipalities; and led to groundbreaking cooperation and engagement in sustainability among the township, county, schools, and community members.

The group founder remains a committed board member with the organization and is planning to focus her energies on educating about global sustainability issues at the local level, as well as assisting with greening of Cherry Hill schools, and other activities.

Executive board vice president and principal with Spiezle Architectural Group, Inc., Scott Downie, is assuming day to day leadership of Sustainable Cherry Hill as its newly elected president. He is joined by other board members assuming new leadership roles including Caren Kaufman, a licensed clinical social worker and leader of the SCH Green Health task force as vice president, Rob Blatt, a self-employed active trader as the group’s treasurer and Christopher Eattock, lead project manager and regional commercial director with Faithful+Gould, Inc. as board secretary.

“Lori’s energy and dedication has always set a high bar for our group,” Downie said. “Our founder’s new role expands how this organization reaches people through our engagement and education efforts in exciting ways.”
