DRi is pleased to announce the placement of the Executive Director at the Vicente Ferrer Foundation USA, a unique organization that connects people from India, Spain, and the U.S. to remove barriers to individual empowerment and community health.
DRi worked with VFF USA to recruit an Executive Director to work closely with the Board, staff, Asian-Indian community, and sister organizations in India and Spain to define and implement strategic plans for VFF’s future. The global foundation, composed of three different organizations, sought a dynamic, visionary Executive Director for its U.S. division, to serve as leader, connector, and fundraiser, and to be the face and voice of VFF to foundations, business leaders, and government agencies.
Today we congratulate Andrey Gidaspov on becoming the Vicente Ferrer Foundation USA’s Executive Director. Andrey has extensive experience as a fundraising leader at a wide variety of organizations, including the start-up Humaniq, the American Geosciences Institute, Hostelling International USA, and the American Councils for International Education. In addition to his considerable fundraising record, Andrey also served as a private-sector and government consultant to for-profit companies in the U.S., Asia, and Russia, helping them forge connections with government agencies and secure government contracts. He is well positioned to connect people around the world to serve the Vicente Ferrer Foundation’s mission.
Congratulations to Andrey and the Vicente Ferrer Foundation USA—we look forward to seeing your success together.
