Alanna Mack has joined the Board of Trustees of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, a leading nonprofit devoted to preserving Wright’s works and design philosophy. Mack joins the Foundation with extensive experience in accounting and a passion for community affairs.
“The Board of Trustees of the Foundation is committed to protecting and preserving Wright’s legacy. Alanna's financial expertise, energy, commitment to architecture and the non-profit community, combined with her knowledge of the Phoenix area, strengthen our board in many important ways. She is going to be a great asset to the Foundation moving forward,” said Jeff Grip, chairman of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.
Mack graduated from Santa Clara University with a BA in economics. It was there where she enrolled in her first art and architecture courses and became intrigued by the sophisticated styles of renowned architects like Frank Lloyd Wright.
Mack spent a brief period in Los Angeles working at a local firm as a certified public accountant before moving to Phoenix to start her own firm, Mack & Rohwedder, P.C. She has devoted more than 30 years to the firm as a CPA. Mack is a recipient of the Public Service Award from the Arizona Society of CPAs.
Mack joins the board as the Foundation is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright’s home and studio in Spring Green, Wis. Taliesin West will be celebrating 75 years in 2012.
Throughout the years, Mack has continued to develop a passion for architecture, whether at Barnsdall art classes in Los Angeles or reading about the latest innovations in design.
“I have been involved in community affairs and volunteer work for more than 30 years. It is a true honor for me to devote time to the Foundation and join the Board of Trustees to continue the mission of preserving Wright’s legacy,” Mack said.
