San Francisco, November 8, 2017—Horizons Foundation, the Bay Area’s LGBTQ community foundation, today welcomes John Marvuglio as its new Chief Financial Officer. Marvuglio joins Horizons from Community Gatepath, a highly regarded Redwood City non-profit that serves people with developmental disabilities. Marvuglio replaces Liz Hoadley, who is retiring after nine years of service.

With more than 30 years of experience as a California Certified Public Accountant, Marvuglio brings deep experience in nonprofit financial and administrative leadership. At Community Gatepath, where he served as CFO, he helped guide it through steep downturns in state funding and developed streamlined systems and accounting models to bring efficiency and transparency across all departments at the organization.

“John provides exactly the qualifications we were seeking in a new CFO,” stated Roger Doughty, president of Horizons Foundation. “Horizons is at an extraordinary moment of growth and opportunity, having awarded more than $3 million in grants to organizations last year and launching the second phase of a $100 million campaign that will protect our vibrant community both now and forever. We are excited by the skills John brings to our organization and know that he will be instrumental in our success going forward.”

“Through my experience at Community Gatepath, I appreciate the value that one organization can provide to the community,” stated Marvuglio. “I am very interested in working at Horizons Foundation because I can see the wide reaching impact that it has not only to the local community but to society at large. It’s an honor to join the team at Horizons since I strongly believe in its mission and focus.”
