Mark Lancaster, former Executive Director, Seva Foundation (2007 to around 2009).

"Mark brings a wealth of international experience, serving most recently at the Presbyterian Hunger Program, which distributes grants to 30 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. He also served on the board of Heifer International for over 15 years, including two terms as Chair, and was instrumental in guiding the organization to achieve dramatic revenue growth and extend its services to more than seven million people in 125 countries...

"Former Congresswoman Eva Clayton (D-NC) worked with Mark on several projects, including Joining Hands Against Hunger. “Mark was a trusted colleague in antipoverty work, always looking to address the root causes," Clayton says. "He understands that true solutions need to include the people being served, and he was effective at building genuine partnerships with organizations in developing countries. I think he's a great fit for Seva."

"Mark's varied career includes several years as the Middle Atlantic Regional Director for the American Friends Service Committee office in Baltimore. He has also consulted on projects in more than 15 countries, including working with Habitat for Humanity in Eastern Europe on board development, with Interaction in West Africa on gender equity concerns, and with Interchurch Medical Assistance as it reorganized its international work."
