PRF Welcomes New Executive Director; Founding ED Takes on New Role at PRF A new chapter in PRF leadership begins in September 2016, as Meryl N. Fink, Esq. becomes the Executive Director. Meryl brings to PRF 10+ years of experience in senior management of global law firms. For the past year, Meryl has served as PRF’s Director of Operations, providing financial oversight while also managing the office and human resources. She will expand on these tasks in her new role, working with the Board of Directors, Board of Advisors, officers, staff, professional support, donors, volunteers and the families we serve to ensure missiondriven success for PRF through program administration and development, internal management, and financial strength and growth. “Meryl quickly became an integral part of PRF’s operations”, said PRF Board Chair Dr. Scott Berns, “and the Board is confident she will be a great asset to the organization and the children in this new role.” Audrey Gordon has served as PRF’s founding Executive Director for nearly 18 years. She will now transition to Director of Development, a position that allows her to continue to significantly contribute to PRF’s mission. “It has been my honor and privilege to have helped lead PRF since its creation”, Audrey said. “I’m excited that 100% of my time will be dedicated to fundraising, and I look forward to supporting Meryl in her new role, and working with our current supporters and engaging new partners in furtherance of our mission to cure Progeria.”
