Mike Kennealy, of Lexington, has been appointed to Woburn-based Cummings Foundation’s board of trustees. Kennealy is well known for serving as Massachusetts’ secretary of housing and economic development under the Baker Administration.
Tasked with advancing economic growth and housing initiatives, Kennealy led significant investments in affordable housing production, zoning and housing policy reform, business development, and job preparation and creation.
