The International Living Future Institute (ILFI) has announced the creation of new leadership positions in a reorganization that gives CEO Jason McLennan time to focus on innovation and reconnect to private-sector building projects.

A new executive director, Richard Graves, will manage day-to-day operations; Graves has served as the U.S. Green Building Council’s senior vice president of community. Mona Lemoine, formerly ILFI Education and Training Director, will be executive director of ILFI subsidiary Cascadia Green Building Council, and Amanda Sturgeon, AIA is being promoted to replace the outgoing Eden Brukman as program director of ILFI’s Living Building Challenge (LBC).

McLennan is creator of the LBC, 2012 winner (and 2010 runner-up) in the Buckminster Fuller Challenge for its influence on socially responsible design. With Graves as executive director, he will now focus on developing new programs, including LBC 3.0, and becoming involved in individual building projects.
