We’ve been hard at work over the last few years in a capacity-building initiative, so that we can continue to bring all the programs our community has come to know and love, and to ensure that they will continue to flourish for the foreseeable future. Part of this initiative has been enhancing our Executive Board – the structural backbone of any good non-profit.
Thanks in a large part to our work with R.S.V.P., an amazing King of Prussia, PA-based non-profit, we’ve been tremendously successful so far, and we will be profiling some of our new board members right here on our website.
Last time, you met Art Menko. Now we are pleased to introduce new Executive Board member Jim Flanagan.
Jim Flanagan began his career as a labor and employment attorney practicing in Chicago and San Francisco before transitioning into Human Resources roles for several high growth companies. Jim ran Human Resources for Starbucks Retail in the late 1990’s helping the company open a store a day. Jim also held HR leadership roles with Bank of America, Starwood Hotels and GSI Commerce, a King of Prussia company that was eventually acquired by eBay. Jim then led HR for Pep Boys until they were acquired in 2016. Currently Jim volunteers for several organizations including VEC and the Chester County Volunteer English Program. Jim has been married to his better half for 32 years and they have three terrific children ages 16 – 20. A graduate of the University of Michigan (go blue) and Villanova Law School, Jim and his family live in Malvern.
