The Roycroft Campus is pleased to announce the recent election of four new board members: George Cameron, Chris D’Angelo, Anne Leary and Michelle Rudnicki. Each of these individuals has a diverse background and a unique set of skills which will be integral to the forward momentum of the Campus’ restoration and preservation projects.
In September 2015, Cameron and Leary joined the Roycroft Campus Board of Directors. Cameron received a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Northwestern University and an MBA from SUNY Buffalo. Originally from Plymouth, Mass., Cameron has lived in East Aurora for 31 years while working for Moog, Inc. in engineering, operations management, and quality and process improvement. He is currently group vice president of process and product integrity. Cameron has a strong passion for the Western New York cultural heritage and also holds a seat on the Board of Directors at the Buffalo Botanical Gardens.
Leary has a wealth of experience in leading organizations in areas of fundraising, donor relations, communications and consensus building. She is a native of the Western New York area and a graduate of Daemen College, and has been involved with many national historic preservation projects and nonprofit organizations throughout New York State and Washington, D.C. She was also integral to several local ventures including the preservation of the historic Main Street district in East Aurora and the restoration and reopening of the Roycroft Inn. Leary is currently an independent consultant, residing with her family in East Aurora.
In January 2016, D’Angelo and Rudnicki joined the Roycroft Campus Board of Directors. D’Angelo is an attorney and has been practicing for 24 years specializing in corporate and business law. A graduate of Canisius College and UB Law School, D’Angelo began his career as an assistant district attorney in the Erie County District Attorney’s Office. He left in 1998 to become vice president and general counsel at Dynamic Enterprises, a restaurant/hospitality company which he now co‐owns. D’Angelo practices law in New York and Florida and is actively involved in several civic organizations. A resident of East Aurora, he has served on the Roycroft Campus’ Development Committee for two years and been involved with several Campus projects.
Rudnicki, a lifelong Western New York resident, graduated from the University at Buffalo summa cum laude with a bachelor of arts degree in communication and sociology. She has been working in development and fundraising since 1994 and is currently a major gift officer at SUNY Buffalo State. Rudnicki’s fondness for this area was demonstrated when she co‐developed a board game about Buffalo called Key to the City during the Trivial Pursuit craze of the 1980s. She currently lives in Snyder but previously restored and resided in an Arts & Crafts-style bungalow in North Buffalo.
“All four of these individuals, in addition to our entire board, will be an asset to the organization and our ongoing efforts to maintain and restore the National Landmark Campus,” states Curt Maranto, executive director.
