The board of directors of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship is pleased to announce that Meg Weston has been appointed Interim Executive Director, effective January 1, 2022. Meg will succeed Peter Korn, who retires this month after 29 years of exceptional leadership and development of the school he founded in 1993. The Center for Furniture Craftsmanship is today a world-renowned institution due in large part to his vision, leadership and dedication, as well as that of the staff, faculty, students, alumni, friends and contributors who have made that a possibility.
Meg, who has been a member of the Board of Directors since 2020, is a seasoned non-profit and business leader, who most recently served as the President of Maine Media Workshops + College from 2012 through 2020. There, she led a multi-faceted nonprofit educational organization in the field of media arts. Meg oversaw all operational aspects of the school including educational programming for workshops and long-term certificate and degree programs, as well as development and fundraising activities. Prior to Maine Media, she served in leadership roles in both non-profit and business enterprises.
“Meg is the Board’s enthusiastic choice to lead CFC during this transitional period as our search for a permanent Executive Director continues. Meg is committed to CFC’s mission and vision and will be laser focused on perpetuating it. Her years of non-profit leadership experience at Maine Media and other organizations will serve her well in this interim role,” said David Ingram, President of the Board of Directors. “On behalf of the entire Board, I would like to express my profound thanks to Peter for his founding of this incredible institution and his decades of service to it. He is leaving behind an organization that delivers an unparalleled student experience and one that operates as efficiently and smoothly as any I have seen.”
