Interact for Health welcomes two new board members

Jul 19, 2022

Two people with years of experience in the local business and financial fields recently joined Interact for Health's Board of Directors. Alfonso Cornejo, President of Hispanic Chamber Cincinnati USA, and Holly Mazzocca, President of Bartlett Wealth Management, began their board terms in June.

Cornejo has been with the Hispanic Chamber for the past 18 years. The chamber works to promote the creation as well as the continued growth of Hispanic/Latino business and to link Hispanic professionals with the best job opportunities. Cornejo also founded Hispanics Avanzando Hispanics, a nonprofit entity that organizes the Cincy-Cinco Latino charity festival that provides financial help to Hispanic-supporting organizations as well as provide scholarships for Latino college students. Cornejo also works as a consultant for companies doing business in Latin America. He has been on Interact for Health's Strategy and Policy Committee since 2020.

Mazzocca leads Bartlett’s strategic vision, while also providing investment management and financial planning services to high net-worth individuals and their families, foundations, endowments and nonprofit institutions. Before joining Bartlett, Holly served as Vice President, Business Development & Investor Relations for a private investment management firm based in Chicago. A resident of Northern Kentucky, Mazzocca was appointed to Interact for Health’s Investment Committee in August 2020. She also serves on boards or committees for Diocesan Catholic Children’s Home Center for Children and Families and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.

“Alfonso and Holly will bring crucial skills to our board as we continue efforts to improve heath in Greater Cincinnati and begin to operationalize the goals and objectives of our next five-year strategic plan,” said Kate Schroder, President and CEO of Interact for Health. “Alfonso has long-standing relationships with local businesses and with community organizations working with our Latino community. This will be valuable as we concentrate on improving health equity. Holly’s skills in financial management and business leadership will help us manage our charitable endowment and as we foster collaboration among our staff and community partners.”

Cornejo and Mazzocca succeed two longtime board members who completed their terms last month. Jeanne-Marie Tapke of Tapke Leadership Consultants served on the board since 2013, including a term as chair. Brewster Rhoads, Principal with Brewster Rhoads and Associates, served on the board since 2015. In addition, Julie Geisen Scheper, retired from a counseling career at Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Covington and prior member of the Covington Independent Board of Education, served on the board since 2019 and ended her term one year early.

Interact for Health’s Board of Directors oversees the foundation’s operations, finances and grant making. Members serve three-year terms.
