As a successful executive director for 18 years, Cindi has the insider answers to advancing the mission without the chaos.  She has managed high-performing boards of up to 45 members, raised over $9 million, and thrives at community building (resulting in a new Y).

Her book “The Impact Triangle” has received international attention, and is based on her success formula referred to as the secret sauce to build a thriving social enterprise.  Cindi teaches in the University of San Diego’s Nonprofit Management Certificate program and is on the board of the San Diego Employers’ Association.  She also serves as a mentor for Social Venture Partners.

When she isn’t snowboarding or jogging on the beach, you can bet Cindi is following one of her favorite Philadelphia sports teams!
