Columbia, MD – Howard Community College Educational Foundation, Inc. (HCCEF) Executive Director Missy Mattey is pleased to announce the addition of two new members to its board of directors: George Doetsch and Mark Kelehan.
George Doetsch, Jr. is the Chairman and owner of Apple Ford Lincoln, based in Columbia, Maryland. Born and raised in Maryland, Doetsch received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Maryland, College Park, and attended Loyola College, where he completed his graduate studies. Since 1990, he has served as general partner of Concern Technopolis, a Russian-American business entity based in Chelyabinsk, Russia. Doetsch serves the community in numerous ways, including serving as a board member for the Howard Community College Educational Foundation, The University of Maryland’s R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, the University of Maryland Medical System’s Board of Directors, the Community Action Council for Howard County, as well as many other charities. His hobbies include boating, traveling, and collecting unique automobiles. He is also the owner of MARAMA FARM, a Thoroughbred Horse Breeding and Racing farm.
Mark Kelehan joined Harkins Builders as an assistant site manager trainee in 1989 and has risen through the ranks over the years, holding other vital roles such as assistant site manager, project manager, and senior project manager. He earned an associate’s degree from Catonsville Community College, now the Community College of Baltimore County, and while working full-time at Harkins earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Management from the University of Baltimore. His strong leadership skills and commitment to quality have served Harkins well and contributed to the success of over three dozen projects, including a mix of senior living, affordable housing, and high-rise apartments in the Mid-Atlantic region. Kelehan’s hard work and dedication to fostering these relationships led to his promotion to Project Executive in 2019. He is active on the ABC Legislative Committee, co-chair of Howard Community College’s (HCC) Vino Scholastico event, and is founding member of the Catholic Charities Golf Tournament Committee.
