Alexander C. Ives has been named President of the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach.
“I look forward to continuing to work to maintain a contemporary Palm Beach informed by its achievements in architecture, culture and design, not dismissive of them,” said Ives. “We must preserve not just the historic properties in town, but also preserve the attitude and approach to building and design which has made Palm Beach the great place it is.”
He added, “It is an honor and a source of great pride to me to work here. I know together with the board, members and staff we can all keep making an already great organization even better.”
Ives joined the Preservation Foundation staff in 2007. Since 2011 he has served as Executive Director of the Foundation. Before that he held a variety of positions as the Foundation’s Media Director, Advocacy and Communications Director, Director of Public Affairs and in 2010 was promoted to a Co-Directorship. MORE...
