Tom Rumpf named Acting Director of Lift360

posted on April 14th, 2017

The Board of Directors of Lift360 has named Tom Rumpf as Acting Executive Director. Tom is a graduate of the Kappa Class of the Lift360 Leadership Intensive, and a recipient of the distinguished alumni award. A member of the board since 2015, he recently retired from over 20 years with The Nature Conservancy in Maine (TNC), where he served as Associate State Director.

Rumpf’s appointment was recommended by the Lift360 transition committee, charged with finding an acting Executive Director and then conducting a search for a permanent Executive Director. Rumpf and the Lift360 staff will ensure that there will be no interruption in programs or services during the transition period, including the current recruitment for the 25th year class of the Leadership Intensive. Laura Moorehead, Leadership Intensive’s long-time facilitator, will be returning to facilitate this class.

“Tom has a great deal of nonprofit management experience as well as deep knowledge of Lift360’s programs and services,” said Lift360 Board Chair Rick Abbondanza. We are grateful for his leadership and willingness to step in on an interim basis to allow Lift360 to take a measured and strategic approach to identifying the next Executive Director.”

Prior to his time at The Nature Conservancy, Tom spent nine years with the Maine Forest Service in a number of policy and management positions, and seven years in organics recycling. He holds a BS in Forestry from the University of Massachusetts, and a Masters in Forest Policy and Management from Yale University. Tom lives in Brunswick with his wife Annee Tara.

At Lift360 we focus on leadership every day–for individuals, in organizations, and throughout communities. It is our mission to inspire leadership, build stronger leaders, and to equip those leaders to tackle the critical issues we face in Maine. That focus takes us into communities and boardrooms, reaching all sectors and all areas of the state. We deliver programs and services working side by side with organizational and community leaders. The impact of our work and the stories we hear from those we collaborate with is an incredible reward. It’s our way to make Maine an even better place to live and work.
