Anne Lewis

Anne Lewis is Board Chair of Oxford Development Company, one of the region’s most prominent privately held enterprises, family-owned since its inception in 1963. She has also been active in Pittsburgh’s civic leadership for more than two decades, spearheading major development campaigns for the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, Fox Chapel Country Day School and Shady Side Academy.

Lewis serves as board chair of Point Park University, where she leads the university’s capital campaign to support the New Pittsburgh Playhouse and the Academic Village Initiative, a multi-block living and learning hub that is transforming the Point Park campus and the Downtown neighborhood it inhabits. She is also a board member of the United Way of Allegheny County, The Pittsburgh Promise, Allies for Children and the Fred Rogers Company, as well as a member of the advisory council of the Heinz College at Carnegie Mellon University. She and her family have long been active in supporting the victims of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis -- better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease -- and in 2010, the ALS Association of Western Pennsylvania established the Anne Lewis Humanitarian Award and Fund in honor of her achievements.

In 2014, Lewis was named a Distinguished Daughter of Pennsylvania by Gov. Tom Corbett (R-Pa.) in recognition of her exceptional public service to the Commonwealth.
