Lead New Jersey Welcomes its 34th Class in 2020!

Lead New Jersey welcomed its 34th class of Fellows at their Leadership Retreat on January 23rd and 24th in Red Bank. Comprised of 19 men and 26 women working across New Jersey in the public, private, and nonprofit sectors, LNJ's 2019 year is off to an outstanding start with this group of energetic and engaged leaders. Learn more about them through their biographies and stay tuned for their upcoming experiences as LNJ Fellows.


Lead New Jersey brings together a highly select group of leaders to learn about the cutting edge issues facing New Jersey, link directly with talented leaders working throughout the state, and lead as a champion of their own most cherished ideas and values. LNJ develops well-informed leaders, known as Fellows, who are prepared to cross boundaries across sectors, work effectively with people of all backgrounds, and find common ground with those who may think differently about issues. LNJ's network of more than 1600 Fellows is our state’s most valuable resource for professional connections and community service.
