When Thomas Mann Jr. announced earlier this month that he was relinquishing his post as executive director at The Pawtucket Foundation, it coincided with the nonprofit’s release of a market analysis for the Pawtucket-Central Falls River Corridor real estate marketability.

The release marked the end of the first phase of trying to develop commercial and residential real estate opportunities, part of the foundation’s strategic plan that Mann helped create in his four years as its leader. But the timing of his resignation was only coincidental and due, he said, exclusively to a new professional opportunity he just couldn’t pass up.

Mann, in fact, expects to help the foundation’s board in its search for a replacement, who he says will be tasked with evaluating the strategic plan.

Mann left his post Oct. 12 to become facilities director at Memorial Hospital in Pawtucket.

“To be honest, it was really tough to make the decision to leave. I’ve been extremely happy in this job,” he said.

The foundation’s board of directors will move immediately, said co-chairman Daniel Sullivan, Collette Vacations CEO and president, to begin a search for Mann’s replacement.

Aaron Hertzberg, the foundation’s program director, who has worked very closely with Mann during the last four years, will serve as interim executive director.

“[The job] is a good opportunity for [Mann] and we don’t want to hold him back. He’s been a tremendous asset,” Sullivan said. “We already have applications [for the job].”

The Pawtucket Foundation was created in 2001 in order to “apply civic entrepreneurship to the economic transformation of the Pawtucket/Central Falls community.”

According to its website, it serves to represent the business and nonprofit sectors in advocating for downtown, riverfront andv transportation enhancements through, among other things, spurring research and resources for those improvements.
