Canon Joins Pension Group August 5, 2014 News The Rev. Canon Anne Mallonee will join the Church Pension Group September 29 as executive vice president and chief ecclesiastical officer. “The role of chief ecclesiastical officer is relatively new at CPG,” said Mary Kate Wold, CEO and president of Church Pension Group. “It was created almost two years ago to provide dedicated, executive-level focus on church relations. The chief ecclesiastical officer, who reports to me, is a key adviser to CPG on developments around the Church and how they might impact our work. Wold added: “When the Rev. Canon Patricia Coller announced her retirement from the role earlier this year, we undertook a national search for someone with deep experience leading complex organizations. Anne Mallonee’s years of service in various institutions around the Church made her the right fit for the role. We are delighted to welcome her to the CPG team.” Canon Mallonee has served for the past decade as vicar and a member of the senior leadership team at Trinity Wall Street. “I am delighted and deeply honored to join this dedicated team and to be part of CPG’s unwavering commitment to the well-being of those who serve the Episcopal Church,” she said. A graduate of the University of Kansas, Mallonee received her MDiv from Berkeley Divinity School at Yale University. She has served on Berkeley’s board of trustees and was a member of its 2014 search committee for a new dean and president. She is a trustee of the Diocese of New York and a member of the boards of the Alliance for Downtown New York and the Children’s Radio Foundation. As a young adult Mallonee worked for Henson Associates, the producers of the Muppets. When she began her seminary studies, Henson Associates awarded her with a scholarship.
