New Executive Director for Pride of Baltimore
ride of Baltimore (Pride), the nonprofit that manages the tall ship Pride of Baltimore II (Pride II), is pleased to announce that Jeff Buchheit has been chosen as the new executive director of the nonprofit. “I could not be more excited to take on this new role as executive director for Pride of Baltimore,” says Buchheit. “After almost 30 years in the nonprofit world, I am honored to use
everything I have learned and all of the relationships that I have built in the city of Baltimore and the state of Maryland to chart Pride’s future course in partnership with Pride’s board of directors and staff. We are going to work very hard and have a lot of fun doing it,” he says. The new chair of the board, Jayson Williams, says, “After interviewing a dynamic and well-qualified slate of candidates, we selected Jeff, who has throughout his career moved organizations steadily forward, making them profitable and relevant to the communities they serve. That experience, combined with his business, government, and nonprofit relationships, made him the clear choice. Pride II turned 30 ##Courtesy Pride of Baltimore this year, and the

entire board is eager to work with Jeff to ensure that she sails for at least another 30.” Rick Scott, who has served as Pride’s executive director since 2013, was recruited by an international nonprofit based in Baltimore. Scott is still strongly committed to the success of Pride and will remain involved as an advisor to the board and to Jeff. Earlier this year, the organization announced a commitment of funding from the State of Maryland for $500,000 per year for the next five years. While the renewed state and local funding is critically important, Pride of Baltimore is focused on expanding its outreach and partnerships with the business community, foundations, nonprofits, individuals, and other sources to secure operational funding each year, implement a strategy for long-term transformational gifts, and integrate Pride II into communities everywhere in a meaningful way.
