Please welcome (back) Susan Lucas-Conwell, as Interim CEO, SVForum
We are pleased to announce that the Board of SVForum has asked Susan Lucas-Conwell to step into the role of interim CEO following Chris Gill's resignation to pursue a lifelong dream of travelling the world with his wife. Susan is taking the reins from Chris on an interim, part time basis, to manage the ongoing operations during this period of strategic alignment and the search for a CEO.
Susan was SVForum's CEO from 2006-2011, and most recently Global CEO for Great Place to Work, a privately-held professional services firm that helps organizations assess, evaluate and sustain great workplace culture using proprietary benchmark analytics tools and data collected from 100 Best Workplace Lists in 40 countries.
Regarding Chris' departure, Deborah Magid, Chairman of SVForum, said "We are proud of the work Chris has done to build SVForum with the merger of SVASE and develop strong programs such as Launch SV. We believe strongly in the mission of SVForum and are pleased that Susan has offered to help the organization through this transition. We look forward to bringing in a new leader who can build on the organization's brand, accomplishments and take it to the next level."
