Trustees of The Lacy Foundation announced Thursday that they have elected Jill S. Lacy as president of the foundation.
She succeeds Margot Lacy Eccles, who served in that role for more than 30 years before her death June 25.
In making the announcement, Andre Lacy, chairman of LDI Ltd., said Jill Lacy’s appointment had been in the works for more than a year.
“Last year, Margot began the process of succession planning for the foundation,” he said in a prepared statement. “She believed, and all of us agree, that Jill is the perfect family member to take our foundation into the future. We are thrilled to have her at the helm.”
She also will serve on the Stanley K. Lacy Advisory Council and was a member of the most recent SKL executive leadership class.
Jill Lacy is a graduate of Ball State University, where she earned a double major in political science and exercise science. She holds a master’s degree in higher education administration from Indiana University and completed the Executive Education Program in Corporate Board Governance at Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.
She is the co-chair of the grants committee for the Women’s Fund of Central Indiana, a fund of the Central Indiana Community Foundation.
Lacy is married to Peter Lacy, Andre Lacy’s youngest son and nephew of Margot Eccles. They live in Carmel and have three children.
