Carson Named Interim Executive Director Of Marshall Foundation

Dottie Carson has been named interim executive director of the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades. Carson succeeds Josette Kaufman, who passed away suddenly last month.

“While Nancy and I and everyone associated with the Marshall Foundation are heartbroken over the tragic and unexpected loss of our valiant and beloved Josette, we are confident that Dottie Carson brings the professional skills and experience to successfully lead the organization going forward,” said Marshall Foundation Chairman John Marshall, who also is spokesman for the Florida Environmental Institute.

Highly regarded for her strong leadership, team building, consensus building and motivational skills, Carson most recently spent more than five years as director of development for the Alzheimer’s Association Southeast Florida Chapter. Prior to that, she spent more than three years as vice president of development for Alzheimer’s Community Care. For 20 years, Carson was owner/operator of the Carson Group, a marketing and business development firm. From 2001 to 2009, she was a member of the Marshall Foundation’s Advisory Council.

Based in Palm Beach County, the Marshall Foundation champions the restoration and preservation of the greater Everglades ecosystem through science-based education and outreach programs. For more info., call (561) 233-9004 or visit
