DRis pleased to announce the placement of Chris Rotella as the next CRFB Director of Development.

The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget is a nonpartisan, non-profit organizations that is one of the leading voices for fiscal responsibility and budget reform. Originally formed by two former Members of Congress from opposite political parties,  CRFB has confronted lawmakers from both sides of the aisle on difficult budget realities for over 30 years, and has produced top-quality, nonpartisan research to educate the general public on fiscal policy impacts. With its expert analysts and policy recommendations, CRFB has been mentioned thousands of times within leading media outlets including The New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, NBC Nightly News, CBS Face the Nation, and many others. As the public face of the organization, CRFB President Maya MacGuineas provides regular commentary on budgetary issues and plays an active role in the organization’s fundraising efforts. The next CRFB Director of Development would have to work closely with Ms. MacGuineas in order to achieve the Center’s development goals.

With such a large profile, CRFB requires a wide base of support to support its programs, research, and outreach to policy makers. The Director of Development would lead a diverse department that focuses on major donors, foundations, dozens of annual special events, and a portfolio of nearly 200,000 individuals that have shown an interest in CRFB’s work and fixing the country’s debt issues. Chris emerged as the candidate whose expertise would be a natural fit for CRFB. He spent the last 10 years in various development departments within The George Washington University, working with senior leaders to build and expand donor pipelines. His experience packaging the work of program directors and researchers to donors at GWU made him a perfect fit for collaborating with CRFB’s policy analysts. His B.A. in Political Science and M.B.A. in Finance from GWU gave him the perfect background for communicating budget issues to prospective donors.

It was a pleasure to work with CRFB and we look forward to seeing their impressive analyses in the news and all around the DC area.

A returning client, DRrecently worked with The American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) to find their current Executive Director. ARCE was formed in 1948 by a consortium of American educational and cultural institutions to assist American scholars conducting research in Egypt. Since 1993, it has expanded its role and worked in close collaboration with the U.S. Agency for International Development and Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities to conserve dozens of monuments and train hundreds of local archaeologists and architectural conservators. During Egypt's civil unrest, ARCE provided much-needed conservation equipment after the Institute d'Egypte was burned. Besides conserving vital cultural sites, ARCE strengthens Egyptian-American relations through close collaboration between scholars and conservationists. Though its work and partnerships, ARCE is committed to preserving an irreplaceable birthplace of human civilization. Laura joins ARCE at an exciting time in its history as it prepares to celebrate its 70th anniversary in 2018. As ARCE's Director of Development, Laura is required to maintain a network across multiple fields, including the academic, art, and historical sectors. High-profile research and cultural institutions, including the British Museum, the American University in Cairo, Princeton University, and the University of Notre Dame, are among ARCE's members, and are utilized to recruit both support and visibility to ARCE's endeavors. With its high-profile and extensive work, the next Director of Development of ARCE would need to be as dedicated as the organization. Laura's past experience would serve her well in this position. She possessed over 20 years of development experience, with the majority of it in prominent international organizations, including the Center for Strategic and International Studies, The European Institute, and the United States Institute of Peace. Her B.A. in German and International Studies from West Virginia University, along with her M.A. in International Affairs from American University, also gave her a thorough understanding of the issues ARCE confronts daily. We wish Laura and ARCE luck in their vital work preserving the past for all future generations."
