My New Gig

Serendipity I guess.

Through a series of oddly connected events and a bit of good luck I've landed a new job at an amazing organization. A very good friend of mine once told me to run towards opportunities and not away from bad situations. In just about every way I can think of this is that opportunity.

I can honestly say that my two years at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has been truly incredible. As a first time "VP" I took my role seriously and tried to not only be strategic in my thinking, but to act as a senior manager should. I tried my best to do the right things for not only the mission and the organization, but for the amazing staff working for me. I hope they learned as much as I did. I'm fortunate that I had the opportunity to contribute and am honored to have had a chance play a small role in the fight against cancer.

I wish I could be at both places at once (no, I'm not interested in being a consultant right now, thanks) and am not so much as leaving here as I am running to an opportunity that is simply too great to pass up.

Starting in January, I'll be cramming myself on a train (Bridgeport to Grand Central) and taking the fight to the world stage. I was very much humbled by the offer to become the new CMO for The International Rescue Committee and have happily accepted.

If you haven't YET heard of "The IRC," it's an incredibly wonderful organization with a rich history and a mission that can only be called "amazing." I can't wait to start! You of course get to hear all about it, assuming you keep reading this blog.

PS - LLS has an open VP eMarketing position - one lucky person will be hired - jump on it now!
