The Foundation for MetroWest Welcomes Two New Trustees

We are happy to announce that our board of trustees is expanding with the addition of two new members: Neeti Ciolino from Ashland and Susie Estella from Hopkinton.

As we welcome Neeti Ciolino and Susie Estella to our board of trustees, we acknowledge and appreciate the diversity of perspective and experience they will bring to our organization. The Foundation’s Executive Director, Jay Kim, states, “The Foundation for MetroWest is dedicated to serving our community, and at the core of this mission lies a responsibility to ensure our board of trustees represents the values, practices, and beliefs of those we serve. With their unique skills and passions, Neeti and Susie each bring a fresh perspective and have each been longtime supporters of our organization’s work. We are excited to tap into their insights and knowledge as we work towards empowering the MetroWest community through our mission and the remarkable nonprofits that we support.”

Ciolino brings over 20 years of experience in Financial Services and is a Senior Vice President at PNC. She also holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and a MBA from Northeastern University. Ciolino lives in Ashland with her husband and their college-aged daughter.

Estella has over 14 years of experience in advertising and marketing. She has worked for several firms including Arnold Worldwide, Putnam Investments, and Partners & Simons. She currently devotes her time to philanthropic efforts within her community including organizations like the Hopkinton Education Foundation and HPTA. Estella and her husband, Tim, have lived in Hopkinton for almost 30 years and have three adult children.

We are delighted to welcome Neeti and Susie and believe that their contributions to our board of trustees will make a significant difference in our ability to support and elevate our local nonprofits, thereby enhancing the quality of life for our community.
