Board Chair Update: CEO Search

A message from 2013-14 Board Chair Brian Dolezal.

Dear Friends,

I wanted to send a brief note to let you know the status of the CEO search for Leadership Austin. The board is pursuing a search process that we anticipate will take several months to complete so we may find the best person to take on this important role. We are currently identifying our search committee with a goal to post the position in September, subject to a number of timing factors. We'll share more details as they become available.

In the meantime, Christopher Kennedy, 2012-13 Board Chair, graciously agreed to serve as interim CEO during this transition. He is leading a professional and dedicated team who are all very busy launching our ESSENTIAL, EMERGE, ENGAGE and EXPERIENCE AUSTIN programs this year. There's a great deal going on right now thanks to very capable staff, board members and volunteers. We'll continue to keep the trains moving while we search for our next conductor.

Starting in September we will be re-launching our monthly Pipeline e-newsletter, where I will provide regular updates on our CEO search. As we celebrate our 35th Anniversary year, I again want to thank each of you for your support of Leadership Austin.

Brian Dolezal
2013-14 Board Chair
