Lena Pope announces today that CEO Todd A. Landry will step down effective the end of April. As the agency’s top executive for 10 years, Dr. Todd A Landry, oversaw growth of its prevention and early intervention programs to improve child and family well-being in greater Tarrant County.

“It has been my honor to steward the Lena Pope legacy for the last decade,” Landry said. “I’m thankful to have worked alongside the agency’s unmatched staff, deeply committed board and remarkable donors to improve the lives of local children and families. “

During his tenure, Landry successfully led the growth of Lena Pope’s Chapel Hill Academy, an open-enrollment and tuition-free public charter school, and oversaw the agency’s entrance into early childhood development. Under his watch, the nonprofit expanded access to local high-quality child care experiences with the opening of two Early Learning Centers.

“Dr. Landry has been instrumental in Lena Pope’s evolution to continue meeting the needs of local children and families. He has also played a key role in fostering system-wide improvements for mental health delivery, and he’s been a vital advocate for early childhood education,” said Lena Pope Board President Erma Lee. “We wish him all the best as he steps into his new role as Director of the Office of Child and Family Services for the State of Maine.”

Lena Pope’s board will conduct a search for a new CEO. An interim CEO is expected to be named soon.
