In this role, he will be responsible for partnerships with corporate funders, content development, program strategy and growth, and operational management of the New Strategies program. Mr. Rosemond will work alongside New Strategies co-directors Bill Novelli and Curt Weeden.

“Since coming to GSEI in 2014, New Strategies has experienced tremendous growth and success,” said Bill Novelli. “Adding a highly experienced nonprofit leader with revenue generation and partnership experience as Chico Rosemond has, will provide further expertise and value to the New Strategies participants, supporters, and alumni.”

“I am motivated by helping those passionate about a social mission” said Rosemond. “I am excited to be working with a program that helps nonprofit leaders realize their development objectives and New Strategies is exactly that - new opportunities to have a greater social impact.”
