Fort Meade Alliance announces new Board of Directors

The Fort Meade Alliance (FMA) is pleased to announce the members of its Board of Directors.

At FMA’s Annual Meeting in June, members elected three new directors to the board Doug Holthaus of J.P. Morgan Private Bank; John Martin of Dynamics Technologies, LLC; and Minah Woo of Howard Community College.

“Our three new directors are professionals who want to serve and make a difference in the Fort Meade Region,” said Joe Pacileo, FMA President. “All three are very active volunteers who have selflessly served community initiatives. They have also volunteered with the Fort Meade Alliance at the committee level where the real work is done.”

Holthaus, Martin and Woo — who have deep expertise, respectively, in financial management, small business advocacy and education — also bring varied and valuable perspectives to the Board of Directors, Pacileo said.

At the Annual Meeting, FMA members re-elected four directors to a second term on the Board:

  • Kathy Burk, University of Maryland Baltimore Washington Medical Center Foundation;
  • Jennifer Crockett, Kennedy Krieger Institute;
  • Kirkland J. Murray, Anne Arundel Workforce Development Corporation; and
  • Kendra Parlock, NPower Maryland.

In addition, Mike Cameron of Applied Insight, was voted on to FMA’s Executive Committee.

Three directors retired from the Board:

  • FMA Past President Jay Baldwin, Atlantic Union Bank;
  • FMA Past President and FMA Foundation President Deon Viergutz, Lockheed Martin; and
  • Former FGGM Installation Commander COL (Ret) Kenneth McCreedy. COL McCreedy, however, will remain chair of the Military & Family Committee.

Past Board Member Stuart Title of AJ Properties also retired from his longstanding role as Chairman of the FMA Transportation Committee.

“We are lucky to have top-tier executives, significant stakeholders, community advocates and influential companies join forces to help make Fort Meade the most caring community of military, civilian personnel, veterans and families in the region,” Pacileo said. “I am particularly humbled by the caliber of FMA’s leadership serving our Executive Committee and Board of Directors. This group constantly assesses the needs of the community, roles up their sleeves and gets the job done.”
