Sean McDonnell
  President of Architectural Heritage Foundation since 1999, Sean McDonnell has been involved in the related fields of design, construction, development and management since 1982. He has been involved at Old City Hall since 1997 and has focused on strengthening and expanding AHF's development activities. His initiatives include new ownership structures to facilitate advantaged financing, public/private partnerships, new adaptive re-use models, and direct equity investment in un-bankable, community-based projects. AHF has recently targeted investment in disadvantaged second- and third-tier cities, demonstrating the effectiveness of adaptive reuse as a tool for economic revitalization. Sean has been able to leverage AHF's non-profit status to open doors to development and to expand funding opportunities.

Sean's previous experience includes founding his own construction company, Butternut Builders, which has created long-term relationships with trade professionals throughout the industry, and work with Robert Luchetti Associates (RLA), a Cambridge architecture firm. At RLA, his design role culminated with the adaptive reuse of the historic Somerville Theatre in Davis Square, Somerville. Sean received both his Masters and his Bachelor of Science degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1992 and 1988 respectively.
