Team Knott Update

Announcing Carol’s retirement and Christina’s arrival


Our longtime Executive Manager, Carol Hoffman, retired this summer after 28 years of service to the Knott Foundation, and nearly 50 years with the Knott family!  Carol has been a familiar face at the Foundation’s office for decades, always leading with kindness and grace.  We are excited for her to enjoy this next phase of her life, and we thank her for her many contributions to the Foundation over the years.  She will be dearly missed!

In May, Christina Rickman joined our team as Carol’s replacement.  Aware that she has big shoes to fill, Christina is excited to bring her accounting and non-profit administration experience and passion for philanthropy to her role as Business Manager.  Previous to joining the Knott Foundation, Christina served as the Accounting Manager at Baltimore Lab School.  She regularly volunteers with Blue Water Baltimore to build parks and plant trees in low-income neighborhoods across Baltimore City.

Christina holds a Masters of Business Administration from University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business and a Bachelor of Arts from St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Originally from Towson, she now lives in Hampden and enjoys reading, hiking with her dog, and trying new restaurants.

Our best wishes to Carol (pictured standing left), and our warmest welcome to Christina (pictured sitting right)!
