Rochester Business Journal
May 19, 2014

The Seneca Park Zoo Society has appointed a new executive director, choosing George Eastman House executive Pamela Reed Sanchez to fill the position vacated by Rachel Baker August.

The Seneca Park Zoo announced Sanchez's appointment on Monday, noting she will take over June 3. Prior to the appointment, Sanchez spent 12 years at the George Eastman House, most recently as director of strategic planning and resource development.

Leonard Bayer, president of the Zoo Society's board of trustees, said Sanchez stood out among candidates because of her strong leadership skills and close ties to the community.

Sanchez said she was excited to start in the position.

“The Seneca Park Zoo is not only a treasure within the Rochester community, but it has also been a special place for my family for many years,” she said. “I am thrilled to be named executive director of the Zoo Society and look forward to leading a strong team dedicated to continuously enriching the overall Zoo experience for our visitors.”
