Dear Spark partners,

Today is a big day for all of us at Spark and for me personally. After 13 years of leading this organization, bringing together an amazing team of thought leaders and changemakers, I am excited to transition into a different role, creating room for new leadership to take Spark into the future. I’d like to introduce Kyle Brost, Spark’s new CEO, and Laura Pinsoneault, Spark’s new Evaluation Director. Both are bringing deep expertise in systems thinking and an understanding of how to support, expand and advance Spark in the coming years.

I am committed to working with Spark in a new role (Chief Learning Officer), one that allows me to engage in what I enjoy most and do best: facilitating learning internally and with clients and partners, with a focus on systemic change. I am looking forward to spending my days supporting changemakers to do good, even better.

More information about what is coming next for Spark can be found in Kyle’s first blog as Spark’s CEO.

Thank you for your continued support and engagement with us. Together, we can solve problems and change the world for the better.

Founder and Chief Learning Officer
