Shriners Hospitals for Children
Chief Development Officer
Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida Area
I have over 25 years of experience building shareholder and stakeholder value in the public and private sectors. Since joining Shriners Hospitals for Children 3 years ago, I have built a corporate team and provided strategic direction that has increased fundraising revenue by over 225%, raising $339MM in 2017 alone. Over the past 2 years, SHC has been awarded Charity Navigator's 4-star rating and this year Shriners Hospitals for Children was named the #1 Health Non-profit brand by the Harris Poll and #1 Most Trusted Health Non-profit brand in the US.

Prior to joining SHC, I served in a variety of leadership positions over the years including President & CEO of the University of Kentucky's Cancer Center Foundation, President & CEO of Global Shelter Systems and worked in investment banking focused on early stage medical technology companies.

Leadership is my passion. I believe that innovation and continuous learning, combined with the desire to improve the human condition, can lead to lasting positive change.
