New Executive Team Members
Jul 17 2022
I am pleased to announce the addition of four members to RSF’s executive team.
Michelle Bruno joined RSF in April as Vice President of Operations. Michelle is responsible for operations of the Social Investment Fund, loan administration, and philanthropic services as well as coordinating RSF’s legal and compliance functions.
In addition, effective July 16, 2022, three staff members have been promoted to the executive team:
In Dana Stranz’s new role as Vice President of Credit and Risk, she will oversee RSF’s credit and underwriting, portfolio management, and enterprise risk.
As RSF’s Vice President of Lending Business Development, Michael Jones will manage RSF’s business development, oversee the relationship management team, and work with strategic lending partners.
Sylvia Lee, RSF’s new Vice President of Finance, will be responsible for RSF’s accounting and finance team and activities including financial planning, analysis, reporting, and asset management.
|“I am excited to be part of RSF and working with this group of talented team members who are mission focused and impact driven.”
|“I am thrilled to join the leadership team at RSF, work more closely with the board of trustees, and evolve RSF’s credit and risk frameworks as we grow our portfolio to support more social enterprises.”
|“RSF has so much opportunity, it’s an incredible time to join the leadership team. I want to see RSF be the go-to provider of capital in the social finance space. And with our current brand, resources, and capacity, I know we have the ability to do just that. With the existing team’s knowledge, expertise, and enthusiasm for the mission, I think we’re going to have a good time growing RSF and serving more social enterprises across the country.”
|“I am so excited to take on this new role. I look forward to helping RSF achieve its mission and know we have talented and dedicated team members to get us there.”
Michelle, Dana, Michael, and Sylvia are joining myself and Erika Williams, Vice President of Client Development on the executive team. These changes support RSF’s strategic direction and strengthen the organization’s ability to deliver on ambitious growth goals.
Activating money so it can be a tool for real change is hard work but we’re incredibly fortunate to have team members who are equally talented and passionate. We are committed to supporting courageous change makers. We do so as we ourselves continuously learn, adapt, and renew. With the recent leadership changes we have the right team to lead and support the organization during this exciting phase of growing the organization and deepening our impact.
