|Dear Friends and Supporters,
We are kicking off the fall season with some exciting news. On behalf of the team and board at C2C, I am delighted to announce that a new Executive Director, Scott Schroeder, will lead C2C into a new era of growth.
Scott is a development and management professional with broad experience spanning NGO leadership, small business development, marketing and strategy. He began his career in the financial services industry before transitioning into the nonprofit sector. He was the Chief Marketing Officer at Plan International, where he led the organization to raise over $30 million in revenue. He also led new campaigns and developed new development products aimed at issues facing women and girls (Because I am a Girl). After leaving Plan, he served as the Vice President of External Relations at Pathfinder International, where he was responsible for fundraising, partnership development, public relations and communications. Most recently, he served as the Chief Development Officer at the Maven Project, a start-up telemedicine non-profit that matches specialist volunteer physicians with underserved clinics.
Scott brings his experience in global development and business to leads the strategic growth of C2C and optimization of its social business model. He is dedicated to setting a clear and bold vision for C2C’s future.
As we welcome Scott, we also would like to express our utmost gratitude to Allison Howard-Berry. Allison played a critical role in designing and executing the C2C model. She and I worked side by side for over a decade and has served as the Executive Director for the past two years.
Through her leadership and dedication to the organization, she helped to transform C2C from its infancy into the social business it is today. Her vision of leadership for developing our community-based clinic network formed the foundation that shapes the C2C’s mission and values. All of us at C2C are eternally grateful for the opportunity to have worked with Allison and are privileged to be able to carry on the efforts she helped start. We are happy to announce that Allison will continue on with C2C as Strategic Partnerships Advisor to the Board of Directors.
Many of you have been great friends and supporters over the last decade. Please know that we deeply appreciate your support, encouragement, and investment in making this transition such a positive one. I hope you’ll join me in giving Scott a warm welcome. As always, we welcome any questions you might have and please stay in touch with us about the exciting work we will be kicking off under Scott’s leadership!
