Lisa Robinson

The OnBoard board is delighted to announce the election of Lisa Robinson to the position of President and board member of OnBoard Inc, effective June 1st. Lisa brings an ideal set of experiences to OnBoard to continue to advance our mission and grow to the next level in this time of corporate change. The president of OnBoard replaces the executive director but in a redefined role designed to further the mission of increasing the number of women in executive leadership and on corporate boards. As president, Lisa will focus on relationships with the Atlanta community, steward the OnBoard mission, and oversee the operations.

Lisa has held nonprofit leadership positions for many years, including Vice President of Philanthropy for The Woodruff Arts Center and Vice President of Advancement for Visiting Nurse Health System. She is currently a partner at Bell Oaks Executive Search and serves on the boards of St. Vincent de Paul Georgia and the Catholic Foundation of North Georgia. She is also a DeKalb County Court Appointed Special Advocate. Please join us in welcoming Lisa to the OnBoard family.

We are so fortunate to have had Rona Wells leading us as our executive director for the past 16 years. Rona has brought OnBoard into its third decade with excellent programming, a strong community presence, and the platform of our Annual Study. Our progress and advancement of the mission that OnBoard was founded on is a tribute to Rona. We have been the beneficiaries of the commitment, intelligence, and enthusiasm that Rona has brought to OnBoard for these many years. She is retiring from the executive director role but will remain on our Board of Directors. Please see the press release.
