Leadership Sandy Springs has named Jan Paul as its new executive director.

Paul, the organization’s development director and wife of Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul, will succeed Carolyn Axt, who is retiring from the leadership development program in June.

“Jan Paul has a passion about Leadership Sandy Springs that is infectious and our selection committee felt she would be an excellent choice to be the face of LSS to our community,” LSS board president Bob Levinson said in a press release.

“For the last two years, Jan has served as our development director, after having participated in the LSS Class of 2013. In her role as development director, Jan has helped LSS identify new sponsors for our various programs and more importantly, connect donors with appropriate opportunities to engage with LSS and our community. Stepping into the role of executive director will allow Jan to maintain and extend her relationships with our donors, members and staff.”
