Lori Healey, former CEO of the Metropolitan Pier & Exposition Authority, will join the Obama Foundation to lead the construction and operations of the Obama Presidential Center in the South Side’s Jackson Park. She begins the newly created role on Dec. 1.
Healey has served as president of Clayco’s Chicago business unit for the past year. She’ll be succeeded by David Reifman, formerly the city’s planning commissioner.
“Lori has our full support on her transition to her new role,” said Clayco’s Bob Clark. “I am a huge fan and advocate of the Obama Foundation’s work, and while I’m sad to see Lori leave Clayco, I’m tremendously supportive of her move and will do everything we can to make her successful there.”
Reifman will take the reins at the Chicago business unit while maintaining his role as a principal and partner at CRG, Clayco’s real estate development and investment arm.
