Christopher Cromwell Named New VP of Finance and Administration

The LEH welcomes Christopher Cromwell as Vice President of Finance and Administration.

Chris will be responsible for building and maintaining the financial and organizational systems of the LEH and Prime Time Family Reading. He comes to us from a broad career focused on helping diverse groups of people work well together toward a common aim.

Chris moved to New Orleans to be a part of the founding team of Paul Habans Charter School in Algiers where he built and led a team providing a range of services from building rehab and maintenance to data management, nursing + counseling, and finance.

Before Habans, Chris was a consultant focusing on small-to-medium firms starting up, growing rapidly, or turning themselves around. In that role, Chris helped grow firms in finance, visual arts + design, travel, and retail. He has also been an innkeeper on an island in Maine.

Chris holds a BFA in theater from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University and an MBA from the Simon School of Business at the University of Rochester, where he was named a William E. Simon Leadership Fellow.

For recreation, “Crom” enjoys cooking, reading, kayaking, fly fishing, skeet + trap shooting, and traveling. Contact Chris Cromwell, [email protected].
