Last December, Kristin Vogen left the top job at the Oak Park-River Forest Community Foundation to join the Chicago Community Trust's development and donor services department. On Monday, the local community foundation announced it had hired Antonio Martinez Jr. as its new president and CEO. 

You guessed it. Martinez is coming from his longtime development post at the Chicago Community Trust. He starts Aug. 13

 "The Oak Park-River Community Foundation is very excited to bring Tony in to lead us in our next chapter," said Stacey Williams, community foundation board chair, in a statement. "We searched patiently for a new leader and believe he brings the right balance of leadership, knowledge and experience, passion for philanthropy and deep commitment to community." 

Martinez lives with his wife and daughter in West Rogers Park where he has been active in efforts to build a new public library and a senior housing complex. 

"My vision for the community foundation," said Martinez, "is one in which it serves as a nucleus that connects people and resources to advance the well-being and vibrancy of the community in a thoughtful, collaborative and impactful way."
