CASA Lake County, a Vernon Hills-based nonprofit organization, expanded its board of directors with the election of businesswomen Noga Villalon and Joanna Lynn.
"Both appointees bring financial and management skills to the board, as well as a personal understanding of CASA's mission and operation from a total of eight years advocating for abused children," said Terri Zenner Greenberg, CASA executive director.
Lynn, 60, of Riverwoods is manager of third-party assurance in the Internal Audit Department at Aon Hewitt, where she has worked for 33 years after starting her career as a special-education teacher at Waukegan East High School. She earned a bachelor of arts degree at MacMurray College, Jacksonville.
Villalon, 53, of Winnetka is a graduate of the J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University, Evanston, and most recently is a co-founder and partner of Cubitt Consulting, a financial public relations and investor relations consultancy based in London that services clients in the United Kingdom, Europe and Middle East.
While at Kellogg, she organized an ongoing Business School Olympics for charity between her school and the University of Chicago. She also served as a combat paramedic in the Israel military.
