[The Church Pension Group press release] The Church Pension Group (CPG) announced today that the Rev. Canon Anne Mallonee will join CPG as Executive Vice President and Chief Ecclesiastical Officer on September 29, 2014.
“The role of Chief Ecclesiastical Officer is relatively new at CPG,” said Mary Kate Wold, CPG CEO and President. “It was created almost two years ago to provide dedicated, executive-level focus on church relations. The Chief Ecclesiastical Officer, who reports to me, is a key advisor to CPG on developments around the Church and how they might impact our work. When the Rev. Canon Patricia Coller announced her retirement from the role earlier this year, we undertook a national search for someone with deep experience leading complex organizations. Anne Mallonee’s years of service in various institutions around the Church made her the right fit for the role. We are delighted to welcome her to the CPG team.
For the past ten years, Canon Mallonee has been serving as Vicar and a member of the Senior Leadership Team at Trinity Wall Street, New York City. Before that, she spent several years as Interim Dean at Christ Church Cathedral, Hartford, CT, and served for six years at the Cathedral Church of St. Mark, Minneapolis, MN, the last two as Acting Dean. She began her ministry in the Diocese of Kansas, where she was ordained.
“I am delighted and deeply honored to join this dedicated team and to be part of CPG’s unwavering commitment to the well-being of those who serve The Episcopal Church,” she said.
A graduate of the University of Kansas, Canon Mallonee received her M.Div. from Berkeley Divinity School at Yale University, where she also served on the Board of Trustees and was a member of the 2014 Dean and President Search Committee. She is a Trustee of the Diocese of New York and a member of the boards of the Alliance for Downtown New York and the Children’s Radio Foundation.
Early in her career, Canon Mallonee worked for Henson Associates, the producers of the Muppets. When she entered the ordination process, she received a scholarship to attend seminary from that organization.
