Ten Chimneys Foundation hires new president

CREATED Sep. 12, 2012

GENESEE DEPOT, Wis. (AP) -- The Ten Chimneys Foundation has a new president.

The foundation had been without one since January, when long-standing president Sean Malone stepped down to become chief executive officer at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.

Board of Trustees Chair Judy Jorgensen announced this week that preservationist and architectural historian Randy Bryant was selected as president and CEO effective immediately.

Bryant was previously an executive at Motorola, Inc. and has worked at the Milwaukee County Historical Society. He was also a past member and chairman of their Board of Trustees.

The Ten Chimneys Foundation started in 1996 to help save Ten Chimneys, which is the former home of late theater greats Lynn Fontanne and Alfred Lunt in Genesee Depot.
