What We’re Reading: Our Incoming CEO Vicki Escarra in The Non-Profit Times's Power & Influence Top 50

By Emily Riemer

What are we reading? This exciting list, of course! Our incoming CEO, Vicki Escarra, as president and CEO of Feeding America, built that nonprofit into a $1.2 billion organization during a time when more Americans than ever were suffering from hunger and food insecurity. In honor of her outstanding work, she’s been named one of The Non-Profit Times‘s Power & Influence Top 50 of 2012, alongside the likes of Bill Gates; the CEOs of United Way, Do Something, Girl Scouts of America, American Cancer Society; and the manager behind social media at American Red Cross, just to name a few.

"[...] nonprofits continue to answer the call in times of crisis, such as when heavy storms knocked out power to hundreds of thousands of homes earlier this summer. It was Vicki Escarra’s Feeding America affiliate food banks that coordinated delivery of vital supplies to places like West Virginia, Ohio and New Jersey."

Congratulations to Vicki and all the outstanding leaders on this list! Read the article and see a portion of the list in the image to the right, or click here.
