I wanted to share the news that Liz Head has joined the LEAD staff as my Deputy Director.
Liz comes to us with a great background. She has been involved with LEAD for more than five years and has been a coach with three of our nonprofits. In addition, she serves as a board member of Presencia, one of the ministries she coached.
Liz has more than 15 years of experience providing advisory services to small- to medium-sized companies. She most recently worked with the investment banking groups of Fifth Third Securities and Cary Street Partners. Prior to that, she held several operations management roles with McMaster-Carr Supply Company. She is a graduate of the University of Georgia and Harvard Business School (linkedin.com/in/elizabeth-head-5474b33).
Liz, her husband Hugh, and their daughters Eleanor and Camille live in Chamblee and are active members of Peachtree Church.
Liz’s service with LEAD and her connection with passionate nonprofit leaders fueled her interest to make her recent career shift. Our plan is that over the next year and a half, she will learn the LEAD operation, develop a new strategic vision and plan and take over as Executive Director in July 2020, when I plan to retire. Over the next few months, Liz will be reaching out and getting to know members of the LEAD community. I hope you’ll enjoy working with her as I do. If you have any questions, please let me know.
