Good stewardship begins with capable leadership.
Ms. Naeem is the Managing Director of ReSET Social Enterprise Trust, an incubator that serves entrepreneurs seeking to launch and scale their businesses. Her understanding of the social impact space is particularly valuable to COMPASS, as the organization looks to build capacity in the years ahead.
Tom Geer has served on the Board of Directors for five years. Prior to his role as Board Chair, Mr. Geer served as Vice Chair and introduced key board members in John Cantillon, Paula Hill, and Elizabeth Schwarz. Rounding out the group is Caitlin Elsaesser, an Assistant Professor of Social Work at UCONN’s new downtown Hartford campus, and Alfredo Fernandez, an Associate Attorney in the Hartford office of Shipman and Goodwin.
The board intends to further expand in the coming year. Community and business leaders with an abiding belief in youth services should connect with COMPASS’ CEO Robert (Bob) Pawloski.
“Simply put, our board is an amazing group of individuals,” notes Mr. Pawloski. “I am particularly grateful to Rich Hollant for his many years of service to COMPASS, and to all of our current and former members who continue to support our mission.”
