The Princeton Area Community Foundation has appointed long-time Princeton resident Michael Ullmann to its board of trustees for a three-year term.
Ullmann is the executive vice president of general counsel for Johnson & Johnson and is a member of the company’s executive committee and management committee. He served as corporate secretary for the company from 1999 to 2006.
Before joining Johnson & Johnson in 1989 as a mergers and acquisitions attorney, he practiced law in New York City. He has been a Princeton resident for more than 25 years.
“Mike’s experience in board governance, his passion for advocating for the needs of children and his strong ties to central New Jersey make him an excellent addition to our board,” said Carol Herring, the chair of the Community Foundation’s board of trustees. “As we move forward with our efforts to improve the lives of children and adolescents living in poverty, we will benefit from his contributions.”
Ullmann serves on the Columbia Law School Board of Visitors, the Cornell University Alumni Council and the Rutgers Institute for Ethical Leadership Executive Business Cabinet.
“Our trustees bring us experience in many critical disciplines, and Mike’s leadership skills and legal knowledge will strengthen our Board and organization,’’ said Jeffrey Vega, President & CEO of the Community Foundation.
The Princeton Area Community Foundation promotes philanthropy and builds community across Mercer County and central New Jersey. It helps people and companies make charitable gifts and awards grants to nonprofits. Since its founding in 1991, the Community Foundation has grown into an organization with more than $120 million in assets and made grants of over $75 million, including $16 million in 2015.
