Last week NCG Member Tides announced the appointment of Kriss Deiglmeier as its new CEO.
Kriss is recognized as a pioneer in the social innovation field and most recently was the founding Executive Director for the Center for Social Innovation (CSI) at Stanford University, Palo Alto. For the past ten years she established CSI as a global leader in the emerging social innovation field. Kriss has more than 20 years of senior management experience that spans the social enterprise, business, nonprofit, and philanthropic sectors.
“Tides has often been called the original social innovator of contemporary times so it is exciting to consider what Kriss Deiglmeier will add to make Tides stronger and better for the future. Tides is a platform full of possibility that will grow with new leadership,” said Stephanie Clohesy, current Chair of Tides Network.
Clohesy continued, “As 2014 begins, Tides is ready for a bright future thanks to the insightful and steady leadership of our Interim CEO, Gary Schwartz, who guided Tides well over the past 10 months.”
