HANCOCK, Mass. — Hancock Shaker Village announces the appointment of two trustees to its Board of Directors: Caroline Holland, managing director of Mill Town in Pittsfield, Mass. and William H. Vogt, retired managing director of JP Morgan Chase & Co.

Holland and Vogt join 17 additional members of the board, chaired by Diane Eshleman.

“On behalf of the trustees and staff at Hancock Shaker Village, I want to express my enthusiasm and gratitude about our two new board members,” Eshleman said. “We are thrilled to welcome Bill back to our family, as he served as a trustee and energetic board chair for the Village some years ago. Carrie’s experience, combined with her knowledge of the local community, brings valuable perspective and great creativity to our endeavors.”

“We’re growing, and a dynamic, well-rounded board is essential in helping achieve our goal of preserving the Shaker legacy and making it relevant for generations to come,” said Hancock Shaker Village Director Jennifer Trainer Thompson. “I am personally delighted to welcome Bill and Carrie.”
