After more than twenty years of service the founding Chief Executive Officer of the Phoenixville Community Health Foundation [PCHF], Lou Beccaria, has retired and is moving on to a new chapter in his life as author, consultant and traveler.

When PCHF was formed in 1998, the Board of Directors brought Lou on to develop and establish the Foundation within the greater Phoenixville region. A job he has done exceedingly well.
On September 19, 2020 the Board of Directors hosted a retirement event for Lou. Nearly 250 people registered to attend. The ballroom at RiverCrest Golf Club and Preserve was full of good cheer, gratitude and well-wishes for Lou.

Correspondingly, a new President and CEO was named: Tamela Luce. A new generation of leadership for, a now established, Foundation. Tamela brings more than twenty years’ experience within the non-profit sector, and more recently with HealthSpark Foundation, to help lead PCHF into the future.LOUIS J. BECCARIA, PH.D.

As Lou begins his new life in retirement, the entire PCHF family wishes him good health, good friends and good times! At the same time, they wish Tamela great success leading PCHF into the next chapter of philanthropy within the greater Phoenixville region. Tamela can be reached at tluce@pchf1.org or 610-917-9890.
