DRI Announces National Veterans Legal Services Program Placements

DRi Consulting


DRi is pleased to announce the placement of the Deputy Executive Director and Development Officer at the National Veterans Legal Services Program, a program for millions of veterans and active duty personnel who may need to fight to receive disability benefits to which they are entitled.

These placements were part of a multifaceted search partnership between DRi and the National Veterans Legal Services Program. DRi worked closely with the Executive Director of NVLSP to find its first Deputy Executive Director to serve as second-in-command of the organization, working on a six-person Executive Leadership team and overseeing operations for a 36-person staff responsible for development, finance, litigation, pro-bono legal work, and training publications. We also collaborated with NVLSP’s development leaders to build a fundraising team responsible for raising $1-2M annually. The Development Officer will help create development systems and play a direct role in donor relations to support NVLSP’s continued growth.

NVLSP’s new Deputy Executive Director, Paul Wright, was awarded the Army Achievement medal for outstanding performance in immigration law and legal assistance. In addition to serving as a lawyer in the armed services, Paul has over 20 years of professional experience in development and finance. In past roles, Paul led acquisitions that redesigned and expanded business at IMPAQ International and acted as interim CEO, CFO, and Board Member at Berkley Policy Associates.

Danielle Graham, NVLSP’s new Development Officer, brings several years of development experience in military and veterans’ organizations. During her tenure as Donor Development Officer at the Marine Corps Association & Foundation, Danielle worked to coordinate fundraising campaigns, create cultivation events, conduct database analyses, and organize donor-facing communications.

NVLSP is excited to add both of these new roles to their team. We extend our enthusiastic congratulations to NVLSP and to Paul and Danielle. We look forward to seeing the success they achieve together.

DRi worked closely with Insight's Board of Directors to guide the search for a newly-created enterprise-level chief executive role. Board members sought a new CEO at Insight to lead an organizational expansion designed to meet a growing regional need for dementia care, as the number of people living with memory impairment is projected to rise to 90,000 in Northern Virginia alone by 2025. The new CEO was charged with working with the Board to broaden best practices and innovative dementia-specific care and to scale Insight's geographic footprint. Today we congratulate Scot Marken on becoming Insight Memory Care Center’s first Chief Executive Officer. Scot has more than two decades of experience leading non- and for-profit organizations and forging relationships between them. Most recently, Scot served as CEO of the Jewish Foundation for Group Homes, where he formed a task force that tackled issues related to the aging of residents, including early-onset Alzheimer’s. Scot has developed enterprise-level strategic growth plans, led high-performing multi-functional teams, and strengthened fundraising programs across his career. Insight welcomed Scot at its 35th Anniversary Celebration on June 5, 2019. "Insight's vision is a community where those affected by Alzheimer's disease can achieve the highest quality of life," the organization announced. "Using his expansive skillset, Scot will be actively working to build community partnerships and create connections with key stakeholders that will help Insight reach its strategic goals and serve more in need in the community." We congratulate Scot and Insight Memory Care Center -we look forward to seeing their success together."
