PORTLAND & ELLSWORTH—The Maine Community Foundation has elected Mark Howard of Boothbay and New York City to the Board of Directors.


For nearly 10 years, Howard has been a managing director and senior multi-asset specialist at BNP Paribas. Previously, he spent five years at Barclays Capital as a managing director. Prior to joining Barclays in April 2004, he was at Lehman Brothers for 18 years serving as managing director and global credit strategist. Howard has served on MaineCF’s Investment Committee for the past three years.


Howard received an MBA in finance from New York University and a B.A. in economics from Colby College. He serves on the board of University College London’s Friends and Alumni Association Board and is a director and past president of the New York-based Fixed Income Analysts Society. He was an overseer of the Colby College Board of Trustees from 2009 to 2015. He and his wife are active supporters of the Maine Island Trail Association, Oceans Wide, Chewonki and Bigelow Labs.


“Mark’s business acumen, gained from a distinguished career in the financial sector, will be invaluable during this period of heightened uncertainty and volatility in the economy and markets,” said Karen Stanley, MaineCF Board Chair.


Headquartered in Ellsworth, with additional personnel in Portland, Dover-Foxcroft, and Mars Hill, the Maine Community Foundation works with donors and other partners to provide strong investments, personalized service, local expertise, and strategic giving to improve the quality of life for all Maine people.
