Life Pieces to Masterpieces Announces New Executive Director

Mary Brown, LPTM’s Co-Founder and Executive Director for 18 years will continue to impact the lives of children and families of Washington, DC’s Ward 7 communities as Executive Director of the DC Promise Neighborhood Initiative (DCPNI) as she steps down from LPTM. LPTM’s Board of Directors has unanimously selected Selvon Malcolm Waldron to carry the mission forward as new Executive Director. Selvon’s appointment is the culmination of Brown’s vision, carried out through a three-year, evidence-based transition plan developed by Mary, LPTM’s Board of Directors, staff, and leading consultants in non-profit leadership transitions.

Selvon joined Life Pieces in February 2012 as Director of Development and Grants. Under his exceptional leadership, Life Pieces solidified its organizational sustainability, diversified its funding streams, and strengthened its financial procedures, ensuring that we can bring our transformative work to the next generation of young black men in DC and spread our impact nationally.  Prior to joining LPTM, Selvon was a United Nations Association Graduate Fellow, where he analyzed the impact of the United Nation’s Human Rights and Environment programs and evaluated the success of the Millennium Development Goals with a cohort of 18 Washington area graduate students from 5 universities.
