Linda P. Foster
Linda P. Foster was selected as Jewish Family Service of Colorado’s (JFS) new president and CEO and will join the agency Nov. 28. JFS’s Board Search Committee conducted a wide-ranging national search for the agency’s new leader and came to a unanimous choice, which was ratified by the full JFS board of directors Nov. 13.
Foster is relocating to Denver from the Chicago area, where she served as head of school at Solomon Schechter Day School for the past nine years. She has deep Colorado connections and owns a home in Steamboat.
She has an impressive background as a leader of both nonprofit and for-profit organizations and business units in a variety of industries, ensuring mission fulfillment and sound financial viability.
Before her tenure at the Solomon Schechter Day School, Foster was the owner of RCLA, a successful residential property development company in Highland Park, Illinois. Before launching her own company, she was president of TJW Residential, a privately held commercial real estate finance company, also in Highland Park. Linda earned a BA degree from Wellesley College and has participated in the Kellogg School of Management Center for nonprofit Management at Northwestern University.
Linda is passionate about JFS and its mission. “I am truly honored and humbled to lead this incredible and impactful organization and to have the opportunity to work with all the talented people invested in it,” she says. “JFS’s mission and core values bring together so much of what is important to me, both personally and professionally. I look forward to meeting JFS’s supporters, volunteers, and partners to build and strengthen relationships and the agency’s impact in the greater Denver community.”
Linda is married to Bill and they have three grown children.
