Peggi Einhorn, chief financial officer and treasurer, is honored to play a role in the Foundation’s work to build a Culture of Health that will enable all to live longer, healthier lives now and for generations to come. With an extensive background in finance, as well as strategic and business planning, Einhorn ensures that RWJF fulfills its financial obligations as a private, tax-exempt foundation, and is a good steward of the private resources entrusted to it in the public’s interest. Einhorn is a former senior vice president of J.P. Morgan Chase in New York City, where she worked in a broad range of financial roles over 24 years. At RWJF, she brings experience from the for-profit sector to help the Foundation meet its financial and organizational goals. Einhorn’s areas of responsibility include payout planning, budgeting and financial analysis, tax and financial reporting, accounting operations, pre- and post-award financial analysis, and support to the Foundation’s program areas and grantees.
Before joining the Foundation in 2004, Einhorn held a range of senior roles in global finance, including work in business planning, investor relations, corporate treasury, and financial operations. She is a long-time trustee of the Brooklyn Children’s Museum, the world’s first museum for children, and a former chairwoman of its Board. She also was a 1999 recipient of a David Rockefeller Fellowship from the New York City Partnership, allowing her to join with 12 other executives in examining key issues in the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors of New York City.
Einhorn received an MBA from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Business and a BA degree from William Smith College. The daughter of a physician, she and her husband Michael Lasky, an attorney, reside in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, and have two adult children. She enjoys drawing, swimming, and biking and, with a three-hour daily commute, is an avid listener of audio books.
