Earth Force is excited to announce Vince Meldrum as its new President and Chief Executive Officer. Meldrum will replace former President/CEO Lisa Bardwell, who is moving to a part-time support role.
“Vince is a proven leader with outstanding nonprofit leadership skills, business vision, and the ability to bring people together,” says Murray Rosenberg, Earth Force Board Co-Chair. “We are excited to leverage his unique set of skills and experiences to shape the next chapter of Earth Force.”
Vince has over 25 years of experience leading a variety of ventures, ranging from national nonprofit organizations, corporate – nonprofit partnerships, and national promotional campaigns. He has transformed organizations by developing new programming, redesigning strategies to incorporate emerging technologies, and expanding organizational partnerships. For the last nine years, Vince worked as a partner at Crecer Strategies, serving as the architect of several large-scale partnerships that brought together nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and corporations to positively impact the lives of young people across the country.
“I am so excited about what is next for Earth Force and am honored to get to work with Vince. He brings a spirit of innovation and purpose that are critical to helping Earth Force accomplish its lofty and important goals,” says Lisa Bardwell, former President/CEO of Earth Force.
We want to also take this time to say thank you to our current President/CEO Lisa Bardwell, who has been at Earth Force for 17 years, first in an executive director role, and then as President/CEO since 2007. Your energy, insight, and ability to push us to think outside of the box will be forever engrained in this organization.
Vince’s official first day will be April 10, 2015. Please take a moment to welcome Vince on social media. Connect with us on Facebook or Twitter.
