Philanthropy Northwest is pleased to announce that we’ve named Jeff Clarke as our next CEO!
Jeff will start in January 2014, succeeding Carol Lewis, who is retiring after eight years. Jeff is currently a senior advisor with The Giving Practice, Philanthropy Northwest’s consulting team, and brings a wealth of experience in the philanthropy and mission investing communities, both nationally and in the northwest.
Jeff says, “The Pacific Northwest is a special place–home to a thriving, diverse philanthropic community whose work deeply respects the people and places they serve. It is an honor to continue to serve the Philanthropy Northwest network as chief executive officer. As a result of Carol Lewis’ exceptional leadership, Philanthropy Northwest is highly regarded and well positioned to partner with our members as they work to strengthen their communities. I look forward to working with all of our members and partners to continue building a vibrant community dedicated to deep reflection, learning and experimentation.”
