We are happy to welcome Dr. Deborah Fisher as Interim CEO to assist with RespectAbility’s transition. Dr. Fisher is well known and respected in the disability and nonprofit community. She has been working with multiple members of RespectAbility’s leadership team for several years as an executive coach. She will report to RespectAbility’s Board of Directors through the Chairman of the Board, Ollie Cantos.
“I am delighted to join RespectAbility during this important transition period,” said Dr. Fisher, who has worked with numerous nonprofits during their periods of change. “In my experience, having a transition CEO is a valuable opportunity for organizations to prepare themselves for a new leader, particularly as the next person will be the first successor to the founder. I look forward to assisting the staff in continuing its good work.”
The search for the new CEO will continue as planned. RespectAbility is committed to an inclusive process and will continue to work with David Hinsley Cheng and DHC Search to identify our new CEO.
