This message is to share with you the progress of the SVCN CEO search and to announce the interim transition plan.
Over the past three months, the Transition Team has actively worked with the executive search firm Carlson Beck, to identify prospective candidates. Carlson Beck presented and discussed with the Team the resumes of all qualified applicants. The Team has selected a strong pool of candidates and will begin the initial round of interviews the week of February 25th. We anticipate the final selection by mid-March.
Patricia's last day as CEO with SVCN will be March 1, 2019. Since we are still in the selection process, Wendy Ho, SVCN's Policy Director will act as Interim CEO as the Team completes the selection and hiring process. Wendy has demonstrated strong management and leadership abilities and we are confident she will be successful in this assignment. To facilitate this transition, Patricia will be available to provide support to the Interim and new CEO as needed.
The Transition Team is dedicated to finding the right person to lead SVCN and support our community moving forward.
