The Kennebunk Land Trust is excited to announce that it has welcomed three new board members to its Board of Director: Erin Cavallaro, Lori Beath, and Bill Cox. These new members join a strong Board of Directors that includes Rob Felvinci, Scott Gasperin, Tony Liguori, Tom Wellman, and KLT’s Chair of the Board of Directors, Beth Sandmire.
Erin is a Kennebunk native and has always had a passion for open spaces and the environment. She is currently the Director of Philanthropy for Maine Farmland Trust, a statewide organization that protects farmland, supports farmers and their businesses, and advances the future of farming. Erin has spent over a decade raising funds and developing creative communication campaigns for local and regional nonprofit organizations.
After spending over 30 summers in Kennebunk, Lori and her family officially moved to Kennebunk in 2016. She became interested in the Kennebunk Land Trust to make sure that this wonderful town does not become over developed and lose its charm. She previously served on the board of the Jon Francis Foundation whose mission is dedicated to saving lives through wilderness safety education, empowering families who have suffered the loss of an adult loved one in the wilderness and advocating for legal protection for missing adults.
Bill has worked 35 years in the investment management industry including institutional and management positions with The Royal Bank of Canada, CIBC Wood Gundy and Drexel Burnham & Lambert. Since 1997, he has been a managing member and Chief Investment Officer of Cox Capital Management LLC, an investment advisory and wealth management firm. Bill’s family has spent summers in Maine since 1963; his family moved to Maine full time in April 2019. Bill loves exploring the Maine outdoors with his family. He is an active member of the Cape Arundel Golf Club, serving as president from 2006-2008.
