Published:

DETROIT — Dykema announced Thursday that its Chairman and CEO, Peter M. Kellett, has been named to the board of trustees of New Detroit, a coalition of leaders from Detroit’s business, civic, grassroots and religious communities, united to promote improved race relations through economic, educational and social initiatives.

 “We’re pleased to welcome Peter to our board," said Shirley R. Stancato, president and CEO of New Detroit Inc. "His record of community involvement and proven leadership adds immense value to our organization."  Kellett's uncle, the late Mayor Jerome Cavanagh, was a co-founder of New Detroit 45 years ago.

“Few organizations can match what New Detroit has accomplished in its 45 years," Kellett said. "Through a variety of programs that range from youth development and educational improvement, to initiatives that advance racial justice and cultural collaboration, New Detroit promotes economic equity and helps build the capacity of community organizations. I look forward to helping New Detroit continue its extraordinary work.”

Kellett, resident in Dykema’s Detroit office, began his three-year term as the firm’s Chairman and CEO in January 2012. Prior to this appointment, he chaired the firm’s litigation department and for many years served as trial counsel for some of the nation’s largest corporations.
