Broadmead Welcomes New Resident, Fred Hinze

Although a native of Brooklyn, NY, Fred Hinze has no telltale accent. He attributes that to his German father and his English major mother. Fred graduated from Swarthmore College with a degree in economics and earned an MBA from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. When military service beckoned, Fred chose to do alternative service at the Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital in Towson. He says he was first treated like an Army private, helping with billing. To his surprise, this turned into a career as he rose to become Vice President of Finance, retiring in 1996. A late career pleasure was working to attract stand-alone community-based mental health programs to the Sheppard Pratt Health System.

Fred met Georgia Coleman, his wife, at Sheppard Pratt. She became Vice President of Human Resources and retired in 2007. She died in 2017. Fred's stepson, Dale, lives in Glen Arm. Fred's English cocker spaniel, Bailey, will accompany him to Broadmead.

A member of Stony Run Friends Meeting, Fred has served on various committees, been a clerk of its Trustees, and had a term as treasurer. He has been on the boards of Friends Care, the Florence Crittenton Home of Baltimore, Friends School of Baltimore, and the Broadmead Board of Trustees.

Fred has enjoyed travel at home and abroad, including with German cousins he got to know following the fall of the Berlin Wall. He hopes to travel to other parts of the world. He also enjoys music, especially classical, jazz and Celtic. Other interests include gardening, hiking, reading and investment management.
