Written by karly@sharedetroit.org    on March 8, 2022    in

On International Women’s Day, we would like to announce the election of Cheryl P. Johnson, CEO of COTS, as the current board chair of New Detroit, Inc. Ms. Johnson is an experienced non-profit leader and the first person of color, and Black woman, to lead in the racial equity organization’s 55-year history.

“Cheryl is purpose-driven and accomplished. She and the board made history by finally electing the first person of color and Black woman as chair. As the longtime CEO of COTS, she transformed the organization’s business model into a sophisticated nonprofit enterprise, using the Passport to Self-Sufficiency model to change the legacy of generational poverty. Cheryl manages multiple facilities, with a budget of $8 million,” said New Detroit CEO Michael Rafferty.
