Over the past two years, SVP co-chairs Eric Solis and Kathy McKim have helped guide SVP Sacramento as we began the process of gaining 501c3 status, more than doubled the size of our annual Fast Pitch event, and continued to grow our partnership in pursuit of improved nonprofit outcomes. THANK YOU to our incredible co-chairs who have put in time and effort to ensure SVP’s continued success!
Today, Kathy McKim terms off as our co-chair. Kathy has lent her network and her support to our effort through her term as co-chair. As Vice President of External Affairs for AT&T, Kathy has the opportunity to support many nonprofit through board service, so we are especially lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Kathy. Kathy and AT&T have been supporters of Fast Pitch since its launch in 2015, engaged in the work of the Sacramento Education Collaborative, and Kathy’s daughter, Madi, has played an active role in SVP Teens for the past three years. We are grateful that she has taken SVP this far and that she has agreed to remain on the board for an additional year. Thank you, Kathy!
We are pleased to welcome Craig Hettrich who will join Eric Solis as SVP co-chair starting July 1st, 2017. As President of Renaissance Executive Forums of Sacramento (CEO Peer Advisory Groups) and CEO of California Growth Advisors, Craig provides premium learning environments that enable CEO’s to build great companies. In his current role, and through his 30 years of experience with companies like Nestle and General Mills, and his 4 years as CEO of Java City, Craig has a pulse on strategic planning, leadership development and mentoring. After joining the SVP Board in December 2016, Craig took on the role of supporting SVP Executive Director Bree Cahill in developing a formal partner recruitment pipeline and strategy. Already, Craig’s support has led to three new partners joining SVP! Craig was also a member of the SVP Fast Pitch Committee for 2017 and coached one of the semifinalist teams.
SVP’s work would not be possible without the leadership of the SVP Board of Directors! Thank you to our entire board for the work you do and will continue to do to make SVP the best it can be.
Thank you SVP Board of Directors:
