WalkBoston has a new Board Leadership Team!

WalkBoston has a new Board Leadership Team!

Betsy Johnson, a Springfield resident and WalkBike Springfield co-founder, is WalkBoston’s new Board President. Betsy brings a passion for extending WalkBoston’s reach to more cities and towns across the Commonwealth. As a former Boston South End resident and neighbor to WalkBoston founder Ann Hershfang, she is well experienced in advocating for walkable streets and applies her skills throughout Western Massachusetts.

Bill Reyelt, a longtime WalkBoston Board member, Brookline resident, and housing and community development expert, is WalkBoston’s new Vice President. Bill led WalkBoston’s participation in the Casey Overpass Redesign in the Jamaica Plain (JP) neighborhood, and lends his professional training in economic development as WalkBoston advocates for main street resiliency programs.

Pui Chi Wong, an East Boston resident and marketing strategy and business process development professional, is WalkBoston’s new Secretary. Pui Chi has helped WalkBoston translate our work to the virtual world with advice on webinar productions, social media strategies, and other digital content management. 

Greg Rogers, a Peabody resident and current Board Leadership Team member, will continue his role as Board Treasurer. Greg is a Certified Public Accountant who specializes in audits, consulting, and tax compliance services to non-profit organizations of all sizes. Greg’s experience is invaluable to WalkBoston and we are pleased that he has agreed to stay on as our Board Treasurer.

WalkBoston typically appoints a new leadership team every two years, but due to the Executive Director transition and the coronavirus pandemic, our previous team provided guidance and strength for over three years. 

We also want to take a moment and thank Emma Yashar (Pres), Linda Sharpe (VP), Matt Lawlor (Secretary), and Greg Rogers (Treasurer) for their service as Board Officers. You have guided us through a time of great upheaval and unique challenges, and we are thrilled to know that you will continue contributing your efforts to the WalkBoston Board in other capacities. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication to making Massachusetts more walkable!
