To the members of the Alliance for Nonprofit Excellence,

I would like to personally thank you for your continued support of the Alliance. We’ve spent the past few months gathering information from you, our members, and thoughtfully planning for the future. Today, we are excited to announce the permanent CEO who will execute these plans.

After reviewing more than 115 applications from qualified professionals across the country, Kevin Dean, a friend and partner to many of your organizations, has been named permanent CEO of the Alliance for Nonprofit Excellence. As the board reviewed applications and conducted interviews, it became evident that Kevin was the right choice for the role. The board has the utmost confidence in Kevin’s character and abilities.  

We know the Alliance’s next leader needs a strong innovative vision and a deep love for and connection to the Memphis nonprofit community. We found those qualities in Kevin.

Kevin is a connector in the Memphis nonprofit sphere, as many of you know from personal experience. His work and success with both Volunteer Memphis and Literacy Mid-South, two organizations structured similarly to the Alliance, prove his ability to oversee an intermediary for nonprofits.  

We are excited to start this new journey. We will continue to update you as we make progress toward the betterment of the Alliance. Ultimately, we’re most excited because we know your relationship with the Alliance will be enhanced by Kevin’s leadership.  

Sincerely,
Carrie Burke
Chairwoman, Board of Directors
The Alliance for Nonprofit Excellence
