SVP Seattle’s own Executive Connector, Paul Shoemaker was honored as one of The NonProfit Times’!
The annual listing names the 50 most influential executives in the charitable sector. Paul is joined this year by notables such as Geoffrey Canada (Founder and CEO, Harlem Children’s Zone), Bill Gates (Co-Founder, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), Diana Aviv (President and CEO, Independent Sector), and Emmett Carson (President and CEO Silicon Valley Community Foundation).
“This is really a humbling, gratifying honor,” says Paul. “It feels great to work with such a committed group of philanthropists across SVP’s international network and have something like this to recognize the collective effort and impact in 25 cities. This was possible only because of everyone across that network. It all started with Paul Brainerd’s vision for Seattle and has taken off from there. And we’re not even close to our full potential. I’m even more excited about the future and this recognition is some great wind in my and SVP’s sails.”
