I wanted you to be among the first to hear that Adrian Scott Fine has been selected as the Conservancy's next president and CEO. His new role will begin January 1, 2024.
Adrian has led the Conservancy's advocacy efforts for thirteen years, also overseeing our outreach, revitalization efforts, and key historic preservation issues. He’s been instrumental in the Conservancy’s efforts to raise awareness and gain support for preserving culturally significant historic places, such as legacy businesses and places associated with underrepresented communities, including women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ communities.He was selected by a Conservancy board search committee following a long and thorough nationwide executive search by Envision Consulting. Adrian stood out because of his relevant management experience and qualifications, but also his considerable appreciation and understanding of historic preservation in Los Angeles County.
I’m thrilled that Adrian was chosen to lead the Conservancy into the future. He’s been an incredible partner in raising the Conservancy’s profile as a thought leader in historic preservation and a champion for more inclusive preservation that not only tells fuller histories but makes a difference in people’s lives today … and tomorrow.
I can’t wait to see the organization reach new heights with Adrian as its president and CEO.
Since we'll need to find a new director of advocacy, I've extended my retirement to December 31st to ensure a smooth transition into this exciting new chapter of the Conservancy.
