Executive Director, Henry P. Kendall Foundation
Andy Kendall became executive director of the Henry P. Kendall Foundation in 2012, and is now launching its new program focused on helping build a stronger local food system in New England. When he was recognized as a Barr Fellow in 2009, he was president of The Trustees of Reservations, a Massachusetts institution founded in 1891 to protect properties of exceptional ecological, historic, and scenic value.
Andy previously worked at New Hampshire Audubon, where he led a $10-million effort to redevelop a portion of an abandoned state hospital site in the Boston’s Mattapan neighborhood, and oversaw the development of a seventy-acre nature education facility for low income youth. He has also worked on global conservation issues in Costa Rica.
