The Boston Foundation (BF) recently announced the appointment of Travis McCready as its new vice president for program.

The appointment marks a return for McCready, who first worked there in 2001 as CEO and President Paul Grogan’s chief of staff.

McCready succeeds Robert Lewis Jr., who left BF earlier this year to found a new nonprofit initiative dedicated to improving the lives of Boston youth.

Grogan first worked with McCready during their time at Harvard University, where McCready was director of community affairs and Grogan was vice president for government, community and public affairs.

Since 2010, McCready has been serving as the executive director of the Kendall Square Association. Before working there, McCready was the COO and CFO of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority, where he oversaw all operations and finance for the Commonwealth’s three convention centers, including the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

McCready grew up in Harlem and Brooklyn, and is a graduate of Yale University and the University of Iowa Law School. He serves on the advisory boards of a number of local organizations, including the UMass Boston Center for Collaborative Leadership, the Harvard Kennedy School Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston, and the American Repertory Theatre.
