He’s been in the sector for nearly 20 years, and has served in numerous executive leadership and board roles – including executive director, vice president and chief operating officer, board chair, board vice chair, and multiple stints as board treasurer. He is excited to share what he’s learned leading organizations. He enjoys talking strategy; methodical operation plans and marketing campaigns; collective impact through collaboration; inclusive leadership development; and, paying for it all through sustainable business models.
