PITTSBURGH (AP) - The former president of the Boston Harbor Association has been named the new president and chief executive of Riverlife Pittsburgh effective Oct. 1.

Vivien Li will take over the nonprofit that aims at restoring Pittsburgh’s riverfronts through redevelopment efforts. Former President Lisa Schroeder resigned in January.

Li joined the Boston Harbor Association as executive director in 1991 and became its president in 2011. She was hired following a national search headed by Riverlife’s board Chairman Thomas Lamb Jr.

The 61-year-old holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental management from Barnard College and a master’s degree in public affairs and urban and regional planning from Princeton University.

Li said she is “honored and excited” to join Riverlife and work toward the next chapter of riverfront revitalization.
