Mary Foukleva Hutchison says she aspires to live by Marianne Williamson’s quote, “Nothing liberates our greatness like the desire to help, the desire to serve.”
Mary joined Impact100 South Jersey in 2022 because she was impressed with how women are empowered to make a difference in the community. Once meeting co-founder Kyle Ruffin, Mary has always been inspired to get involved.
For Mary, it all goes back to 2015. The Community Foundation of South Jersey and Sidney Hargro convened a group of women to think and work through a specific topic – How do women make an impact locally? Mary first met Kyle when they worked together to create a Community Foundation event around which women came together to discuss their views on philanthropy. The event led to others launching Impact100 South Jersey.
Mary serves on the board of Oaks Integrated Care, a $130 million behavioral health organization in New Jersey. She also Chairs their Development Committee and is a member of the Employee Benefits and Investments Committee at Oaks. Additionally, Mary is a member of NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners) South Jersey Chapter.
Mary is a Vice President and Senior Relationship Strategist at the PNC Private Bank. In this role, she leads a team of specialists, providing advice on public and private market investing, lending strategies, trust and estate planning, and charitable endeavors.
Originally from Eastern Europe, Mary earned an Honors Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Toronto (Majoring in Economics) and subsequently received a Master of Business Administration degree from Cornell University’s Johnson School of Business in Ithaca, NY.
Mary’s husband, Ryan, is the Chief Technology Officer at ASI (Advertising Specialty Institute) in Trevose, PA. They have two children — ages 9 and 5 — and live in Lumberton.
Mary respects the way Impact100 South Jersey continues to improve our community and plans to continue her involvement with the women’s collective giving group.
