Leuba Now Leading Eastern Div. of Trustees of Reservations
October 14, 2016 The Trustees of Reservations, a nonprofit based in Sharon, the largest conservation and preservation organization in Massachusetts, recently announced the appointment of Alicia Leuba as vice president of its eastern region.
In the position, Leuba will oversee the strategic direction and management of more than 50 properties and business operations in the eastern part of Massachusetts, including the North Shore, Greater Boston, Boston, Southeast, the Cape, and Islands.
We are delighted to have Alicia join our executive leadership team, said Barbara Erickson, Trustees president and CEO. Her depth of experience in managing diverse geographies, strategic conservation and preservation projects, and complex property transformations will be an invaluable asset as The Trustees continues to steward, restore, and grow support for our amazing portfolio of scenic, cultural and natural properties.
Before joining The Trustees, Leuba spent more than two decades at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, a national nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C., where she served in different leadership capacities, most recently as senior field director.
She was responsible for developing and leading multi-faceted strategic initiatives to save Americas most vulnerable treasures, as well as working with diverse stakeholders to encourage action, engagement, and sustainable stewardship. Before that, she worked for The Trust for Public Land in a variety of different roles advancing conservation transactions and acquisitions in New York and New England.
Earlier in her career, she served as site manager for Weir Farm in Connecticut where she was instrumental in helping create Connecticuts first national park.
Leuba holds a wide variety of volunteer positions, serving on the advisory board of the International Land Conservation Network and in an advisory capacity for the Massachusetts Community Preservation Coalition, Mount Auburn Cemetery, and the Stephen T. Mather Building Arts and Craftsmanship High School.
She also serves on the board of directors of the Jose Mateo Ballet Theatre in Cambridge, where she leads the organizations Legacy and Succession Planning Committee.
Leuba is a certified Historic Real Estate Development professional and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in art history from Denison University.
