PCDC is pleased to announce the recent appointment of two new executives. Dana Reed joins PCDC as Managing Director, Capital Investment, and Daniel J. Lehman will be PCDC’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Both appointments followed highly competitive national searches led by a search firm.
“I am thrilled to round out PCDC’s executive team with these two individuals,” said PCDC CEO Louise Cohen. “Dana brings a wealth of experience and expertise as an impact investor and advisor, raising and deploying capital for mission-driven community projects in the United States and Africa. Dan is a mission-oriented leader in the nonprofit world with deep experience in financial management, operations, and strategy, and has served as PCDC’s Interim CFO since May 2021. Both individuals will provide strategic vision, set priorities, expand our reach and increase our impact to achieve health equity.”
Dana Reed will lead PCDC’s capital investment practice to leverage and grow the portfolio of primary care, behavioral health, and health equity lending in under-resourced and disinvested communities, managing a dynamic and growing division of lending professionals. Ms. Reed comes to PCDC with 20+ years of experience in financial service firms including Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan. She is a financial advisor to emerging companies in the health care and technology sectors that provide solutions to underrepresented communities, as well volunteering at several non-profit organizations in her community. Ms. Reed earned her MBA and bachelor’s degree in International Business from Howard University.
Dan Lehman will direct PCDC’s financial strategy and oversee all day-to-day financial management and administrative functions. Prior to PCDC, he was the Deputy Commissioner for Finance & Planning at the New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene; the CFO and then COO at Children’s Aid New York; and the interim CEO for the Collegiate Church of New York. He holds an MBA from the NYU Stern School of Business and a BA in Economics & East Asian Studies from Harvard University.
