Big News!

  • Two Executive Searches Completed
  • Kids’ Meals: I am pleased to announce that Beth Braniff Harp has been promoted to Executive Director.  Beth has been Kids’ Meals’ Director of Development for the past 8 years and she is excited to take on her new role.  Beth served as Interim Executive Director during the search.  We had over 30 applicants and the committee, led by Kids’ Meals Board Chair Wyatt Hogan, did an incredible job identifying the key traits needed and interviewing four finalists.  Congratulations Beth!
  • The Alliance for Multicultural Community Services: I am pleased that Dan Stoecker has been named CEO of the Alliance.  Dan comes with significant experiences working locally and nationally with organizations focused on community-building, disaster planning and refugees. He is passionate about the many different communities that make Houston so diverse and quite unique.  The Search Committee was led by their Board Chair, Layla Misgina, and they, too, did great work crafting a new job description and assessing the needs of the organization. We had many applicants that led to five finalists.  Congratulations Dan and everyone at the Alliance!
