Jan 10 2018

The Philadelphia Police Foundation has elected three new people to its Board of Directors.

Maureen S. Rush, Philadelphia Police Foundation President, said Joanne M. Berwind, Max C. Tuttleman and Al Nanni recently were elected to two-year terms on the nonprofit organization’s Board of Directors.

“The Philadelphia Police Foundation is pleased to welcome these three outstanding business and community leaders to our board,” Rush said. “I know their efforts on behalf of the Foundation will result in important benefits for the men and women of the Philadelphia Police Department as they continue their efforts to maintain a safe city for all of the men, women and children of Philadelphia. “

Joanne Berwind, a highly successful corporate businesswoman who has dedicated much of her efforts to philanthropic endeavors and nonprofit board service, including the Philadelphia Zoo, Women’s Way, Friends of Rittenhouse Square and the Philadelphia Art Alliance, became involved with the Philadelphia Police Foundation when she donated bulletproof body armor to all four-legged officers of the Philadelphia Police Department’s K9 Unit. Ms. Berwind earned a BA in Accounting/Finance and a Master’s of Business Administration from Drexel University.

Al Nanni is Vice President of Sales for The Corin Group and President of Pivot Medical Technologies, a market leader in hip arthroscopy. A graduate of Rutgers University, he has great respect for first responders and the military.

Max Tuttleman is a Philadelphia-based investor, entrepreneur and philanthropist. He is a trustee of the Tuttleman Foundation.

The Philadelphia Police Foundation (www.phillypolicefoundation.org) was established in 1999 by civic and corporate leaders in the Philadelphia region as “A Force Behind the Shield.” In the past few years, the PPF has raised and distributed almost $2 million to the Philadelphia Police Department for equipment, programs and training not included in the city’s budgets.
