Aspen Leadership Group mourns the loss of our colleague and friend, Ann McLaughlin Korologos. Ann made significant, positive, and lasting contributions to the world of philanthropy, and beyond. She will be sorely missed.
"My colleagues and I are deeply saddened by the death of our friend Ann Korologos. Ann was a champion of ALG from the beginning of the firm and encouraged many nonprofit leaders to develop a relationship with ALG. Our ALG value statement–"relationships matter"–is a perfect way to describe the way Ann approached her life and her work. All of her colleagues and friends benefited from her extraordinary wisdom combined with deep loyalty, caring, and wonderful humor. We celebrate all Ann gave–as a public servant, as a nonprofit leader, and as a champion of ideas and art–to make our country and our world a better place." – Ronald Schiller, Founding Partner, Aspen Leadership Group
