Natural Lands Trust (NLT), one of the region’s prominent land conservation organizations, recently announced the appointment of two new members to its board, including a Unionville resident.

John B. “Jeb” Hannum III, has been an active member of Natural Lands Trust’s President’s Council since its inception in 2007. He is the executive secretary of the Pennsylvania Horse Breeders Association, a nonprofit that oversees the Pennsylvania Breeding Fund, trust news release said.

Hannum’s previous work experience in the U.S. and the United Kingdom includes positions with Wilmington Trust Company, the United Nations Foundation, the Office of John Gummer and Harvey Nash (where he was a contributing author for The European Union & Global Climate Change Report commissioned by the Pew Center), GlaxoSmithKline, Bristol Myers Squibb, and the Country Properties Division of Prudential Fox & Roach. Hannum has also served on the boards of the Pennsylvania Horse Racing Commission, Chester County Hospital, and Buck & Doe Trust.

Hannum, who has an undergraduate degree from Hobart College and a master’s degree in government administration from the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Institute, lives with his wife, Emily, and their three children in Unionville. “I am committed to open space preservation and feel that connecting our young people with nature will be ever more important in an increasingly digital age,” Hannum said. “NLT has a great team and I look forward to working with everyone.”

The other new board member is Robert K. Stetson, a Berwyn resident who has served on Natural Lands Trust’s President’s Council since the fall of 2011 and as a non-trustee member of the organization’s Finance and Investment Committees since 2012.

“We are enormously grateful for the time and energy that Jeb and Bob have dedicated to our organization already,” said NLT President Molly Morrison. “We look forward to benefitting from their more elevated involvement in the coming years.”
