Dear East Tennessee Foundation supporters,

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to thank you once again for your support of East Tennessee Foundation (ETF). I am writing to inform you about a transition in leadership.

Michael McClamroch is no longer serving in the role of President and CEO for the Foundation. He will be available to the ETF team in an advisory role as needed through the end of 2022. We thank him for his 21 years of service to the Foundation and the communities we serve, and we wish him well.

We will appoint a search committee immediately to identify a successor. In the meantime, within the week, we will name interim leadership.

The staff, as you know, is extremely professional, competent, and mission-driven and they will keep ETF moving in the successful direction it has been headed over the course of its history.

We appreciate your support as we go through this transition. I will keep you informed of developments as they occur.

Bruce Hartmann, Board Chair
