Sophie Lane - Chief Executive
Sophie took on the role as Chief Executive of Northland Community Foundation in May 2022, having previously had responsibility for the operations of the foundation, including finances, IT, and processes.
She enjoys working hard to make a better future for the Northland community she now calls home. She uses her experience in project management, team leadership and financial management, as well as her technical and analytical skills, to guide the foundation’s growth and to provide a better experience for our donors and grant recipients.
Sophie’s background is in mechanical engineering, product design and management. She dabbled in the non-profit world as a volunteer while taking a break from work to raise a family, before taking on a role with Northland Community Foundation in 2017.
In her spare time, Sophie enjoys sailing, singing in a women’s barbershop chorus and exercising her creativity by decorating elaborate birthday cakes for her kids.
