Hotdiggity, 20 New Staff around the World!

Posted by Cecilia Garza

Assuming you’ve come across your own website recently, you probably don’t need an update on our growth. But since my elevator speech is on point: There are now more than 3,200 SVP Partners in 40 cities — and counting — across the globe. Collectively that means we have been able to invest more than $63 million and thousands of skilled volunteer hours in some pretty awesome organizations.

This past year has been extra special for us though. And I’m not saying that because I work at the SVPI/Seattle offices and staff size, programs and funding are looking damn promising this year. I’m saying that because our office isn’t the only one that’s bringing new blood on board. And, for that matter, I’m probably not alone in saying that 2017 will be a ride.

In the past six months, at least 20 new staff members have joined the network, from communications managers to altogether new EDs starting new affiliates! Hotdiggity, that’s bonafidedly fabulous! (<<Okay, I don’t even know what that means. It’s noise, people. I’m making happy noise!)

For the past 15 years, we’ve been a network of many one-woman-, one-man-, one-person-bands. I mean, hell, let’s be honest. Those aforementioned stunning digits are straight-up in no small way due to all the solo EDs in our network. Which makes this news even more exciting. Some of our teams are growing in size. Some are revitalizing existing positions. And others are joining the fleet of solo staffers on the trek to bringing SVP to their community. I’ll skip all the resulting buzzwords that come with these changes and go right to a solid cheers to smoother running operations!

Welcome SVP Newbs!
