An Important Update to Share

Dear Friends in Community,

We’re posting this note to share some upcoming changes within our organization.

Melissa Pollard, our current CEO, will be stepping down from her role with our team as she and her family relocate to another country.

While the BBBS Board of Directors and staff team are sad to see Melissa go, we are grateful for the strong-rooted, transformational changes that have laid the foundation for our future successes.

We have been working internally to ready ourselves for innovative and fresh approaches to working with and in support of our community and are excited for the work we will continue in the years ahead.

We are so pleased that Melissa will continue to lead the organization in fulfilling our strategy until her successor is named. We will follow up with a formal goodbye in December.

The Board of Directors appreciates Melissa’s commitment to advocating for our young people as well as the substantial impact she has had in our organization and the communities we serve. We are grateful that she will continue to lead the organization while we undertake a search for our next CEO.

As we look to ensuring we find the right person to support our strategy, our Board Search Committee has engaged KCI Search + Talent, to lead the process. Please click here to view the job posting. We invite you to share this information with potential candidates. Any questions regarding the candidacy for the CEO role can be directed to Samantha David, Associate Vice President, KCI Search + Talent, at
