WALKBOSTON RECOGNIZES WENDY LANDMAN’S 15 YEARS OF LEADERSHIP

BOSTON: October 2, 2019 — Tonight, WalkBoston will honor Executive Director Wendy Landman’s 15 inspiring years of leadership, and welcome incoming Executive Director Stacey Beuttell (current Deputy Director) at “Walk With Us: A Celebration of Leadership,” starting at 6pm at the Society of Arts & Crafts in the Seaport. The organization will look back on achievements over the past 15 years and look ahead to their ambitious vision for the future.
