"We're tremendously fortunate to have attracted several dynamic business and community leaders to the Crossroads board, each bringing a unique blend of passion, energy and expertise," said Patrick Murray, president of the Crossroads board of trustees. "I'm confident that John O'Donnell's extensive investment background will serve us well as we work to strengthen Crossroads' financial sustainability."
O'Donnell is a vice president at Wells Fargo Advisors in Florham Park, NJ. With 29 years of individual and institutional investment experience, including planned giving and trusts, he has built a financial counseling ethic on a commitment to customer service through face-to-face communication.
"Thanks to Crossroads' work to promote New Jersey's Revolutionary story and the historic sites that bring it to life, more people than ever are discovering a remarkable history in their own backyards," said O'Donnell. "I look forward to working with Crossroads' leadership to ensure that we have the resources to support those sites and organizations well into the future."
O'Donnell is one of four new trustees elected to the Crossroads board. The others include Kathleen Ellis, executive vice president and chief operating officer of New Jersey Natural Gas; John Hardiman, public affairs director at NJM Insurance; and Christopher Paladino, president of New Brunswick Development Corporation.
