CUP welcomes Michelle Pullaro as our Interim Executive Director.  Michelle brings extensive experience in the non-profit sector, including strategic planning, partnership development, and program design.  She is Managing Partner at Quidoo Consulting, focused on helping leaders in the nonprofit sector develop the management and organizational capacity to achieve results. We are confident that Michelle will provide strong leadership as we continue the search for our next Executive Director.  Click here to learn more about Michelle.  

 

"The CUP Board did what great boards do, and brought in an Interim Executive Director to ensure that CUP programs continue to thrive, staff is supported and the Board of Directors can take the time to identify the right person to lead CUP into a new era where diverse business and civic leaders prominently reflect the communities they serve. I am both excited and honored to help lead them through this transition." 

- Michelle Pullaro, CUP Interim Executive Director

 

OnRamps, the leading search firm in the non-profit sector, continues to source and interview candidates for the Executive Director role.  Early marketing and outreach efforts have generated a large pool of applicants who are being reviewed and we encourage CUP members to continue to refer recommendations of qualified candidates. Click here to read the job description.

To date, we have featured Mellody Hobson, President of Ariel Investments, LLC, and Geoffrey Canada, Social Activist & Educator and CEO of Harlem Children's Zone. Our third video highlights Rosie Rios, Treasurer of the United States and Economic Development Expert.  To view the video, click the image below.
