Family Promise, the leading nonprofit engaging communities across the country to address family homelessness, continues to evolve as it celebrates 30 years transforming lives and empowering families as a national organization. That change starts at the top, and Family Promise recently announced several leadership changes to their National Board of Trustees.
- Kevin Barrett, current Trustee and former CEO of Altegra Health, has been elected Vice Chair of the Board, replacing Cassandra A. Hardman, CEO of Hardman Johnston Global Advisors.
- Five longtime Trustees have retired from the Board at the expiration of their terms: Cary R. Hardy; Robert W. Parsons, Jr.; Sig Huitt; Edwin J. Hagerty; and Cassandra A. Hardman.
- Dan Tinkoff, Senior Partner at McKinsey & Company, has been elected as a Trustee.
Regular transitions are welcome and necessary to ensure that the Board continues to grow and evolve over time. However, rather than lose all of their considerable institutional memory and experience, it is common for some trustees to remain connected with the organization in an advisory capacity. As such, Cary R. Hardy and Robert W. Parsons have accepted seats on the Family Promise Emeritus Board and will continue to provide valued counsel to the organization.
Family Promise Board Chair Angela Schroeder commented on the transition: “These trustees, many of whom served for close to ten years, guided the organization through its major growth phase and ensured its constant focus on the families we serve. We will be forever grateful for their commitment and contributions.”
Dan Tinkoff joins the Board as a leader in McKinsey’s Global Pharmaceuticals & Medical Products Practice, working extensively with management teams and boards to help them optimize performance. His experience with advanced data and analytics will be invaluable to Family Promise’s strategic planning process moving forward.
Explaining why he chose to join Family Promise, Tinkoff said, “My family has always been my greatest source of strength and resilience. As such, Family Promise’s mission matters profoundly to me. At my first hosting event, I was immediately struck by the power of ‘families helping families’ and the caring connections that can make a life-altering difference. I’m incredibly excited to lend my experience and expertise to help Family Promise shape its strategy and path forward to scale its impact even further.”
Family Promise is pleased to welcome Kevin and Dan to their new positions and to give sincere thanks to the retiring members for their continuing commitment and generous support of our mission to effect change in the lives of the thousands of children and families we serve nationwide.
