We’re sad to announce that Program Manager Douglas Gómez Mendiburu is leaving SVP to pursue a new opportunity in Montréal. Douglas joined SVP in July 2018 and has made tremendous contributions to the growth and quality of our programming for both Investees and Partners.
“Working at SVP has been such a great experience,” says Douglas. “I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with an amazing set of stakeholders—our Partners and our Investees—and I’m very proud of what we’ve accomplished together. I want to thank everyone, especially the SVP staff, for their love and support.”
Says Chief Operations Officer Gina Ungaro, “Douglas brought sensitivity and a quirky sense of humour to SVP. He was instrumental in implementing The Alumni Investee Program, refining our engagement tracking systems, and creating a space where our non-profits felt included and welcome. We’re going to miss him, but wish him all the best on his new adventure in Montréal.” Douglas’s last day at SVP is Monday, February 24th.
