FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Easterseals NH Welcomes Key Executives to Leadership Team
New Chief Officers Bring Strategic Growth, Policy, and Research Expertise

Manchester, NH, January 12, 2022 – Easterseals New Hampshire, the twelfth largest employer in the state and one of its largest social services providers, has added two new Chief Officers to its executive team.

“I am excited to welcome Lisabritt Solsky and Cathy Kuhn to our leadership team,” noted Maureen Beauregard, President and CEO of Easterseals New Hampshire.  “We have recently completed a strategic planning process, and these two leaders will be charged with overseeing how Easterseals NH can grow in accordance with the goals set out in that strategic plan. They will be trusted advisers to me, to the Board and to other senior leaders within the organization as we advance our bold agenda of building centers of excellence across the state, growing our program integration and scale, and positioning Easterseals New Hampshire as a best-in-class provider for state agencies and referring partners.”

Lisabritt Solsky, JD, CHIE, joins Easterseals NH as the organization’s first Chief Growth Officer. Solsky has spent her 25-year career serving the public interest. A lawyer by trade, she graduated from the University of the District of Columbia’s David A. Clarke School of Law and worked for several years in legal aid in Massachusetts. She then spent 15 years working for the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services in various roles, including Deputy Medicaid Director. She was the Executive Director of Well Sense, which was recognized as the number one female-led not-for-profit by Business NH Magazine 2016 and rated a Best Company to Work For by Business NH Magazine in 2017 and 2018.

Most recently, Solsky served as Vice President of Strategy and Corporate Development at Granite State Independent Living. She currently serves on the NH Public Health Association Board of Directors, where she chairs the Membership Committee. Solsky is a passionate amateur horticulturist who dedicates much of her spare time to tending her extensive gardens at her home in Concord.

Cathy Kuhn, PhD, joins Easterseals NH as the organization’s first Chief Training, Policy, and Research Officer. She has over 20 years of experience leading organizations in the homelessness and housing sector. Most recently, Kuhn served the Metropolitan Housing Coalition (Kentucky) as its Executive Director. Prior to her time in Kentucky, Kuhn was the Chief Strategy Officer at Families in Transition, New Hampshire’s largest homelessness, and housing provider, where she had worked since 2006. From 2012 to 2020, she served as the Director of the New Hampshire Coalition to End Homelessness, a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding effective solutions to homelessness through research, education, and advocacy.

Kuhn holds a PhD in Sociology and Urban Studies from Michigan State University. She was a Peace Corps volunteer in Panama, where she taught environmental education in primary schools and has held several adjunct teaching roles at the university level. In her free time, Kuhn is an avid runner, having run ten marathons, including five consecutive Boston Marathons, as well as dozens of half marathons across the country.
