The Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership, Inc. (TTF) welcomes Julie Slavet as its newest Executive Director!
Gerry Kaufman, chair of the TTF Board of Directors welcomed Julie Slavet as the new Executive Director, saying, “Julie was selected from among a group of highly qualified finalists for the position. Slavet brings to TTF talents and experience that we need as we move forward with the Philadelphia Water Department and our other partners in implementing Philadelphia’s ambitious stormwater management plan.”
Slavet brings to TTF over 20 years of increasing responsibility in community affairs, program development, and personnel management. Most recently, she served as the senior district staff member for Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz, leading constituent services and outreach efforts in a district of 650,000 constituents in Montgomery County and Northeast Philadelphia. Throughout her career, Slavet has been instrumental in building relationships with elected and appointed officials at all levels of government, as well as in corporate, educational and community-based organizations. Prior to serving as District Director, Slavet expanded the programs, membership and reputation of the Eastern Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce while serving as Executive Vice President. Slavet also serves as a Director of the Hiway Theatre Board, an Advisor to the Jenkintown Community Alliance, and a Director of the Montgomery County Democratic Women’s Leadership Initiative.
“I’m excited about bringing my skills, experience, network, and energy to working with TTF’s incredible Board, staff, and partners to continue to build upon its effectiveness and critical impact upon the watershed and region,” says Slavet.
The TTF Partnership would like to acknowledge the outstanding contributions of former Executive Director, Sarah RobbGrieco, who expanded the organization from a volunteer-based partnership to a fully staffed highly successful nonprofit organization. During her tenure as Executive Director, RobbGrieco expanded the organizational staff from one to four full time employees and raised the organizational budget by 500%.
