We are very excited that 1girl has brought on two new Board members this month! As we expand our outreach, bringing in talented, knowledgeable people who can help guide the organization in the right direction is critical to our success. We are very grateful to have these two involved with our work. Our new members are:
Petre Ghitescu: Petre is a Risk Advisory Services Manager at McGladery. He has over 15 years of experience in a variety of financial roles, including accounting, internal auditing, external auditing, and consulting. Petre is passionate about the 1girl mission because he has two daughters, and he wants the two of them to grow up in a world where they are able to accomplish anything they want to. He is also inspired by his wife, who is very involved in women’s organizations, including serving as a Board member for WELD. When talking to Petre, his excitement for this work is obvious, and it is clear he will bring valuable insights and skills to the Board. Petre will serve as the 1girl Board Treasurer.
Alfred Yates: Alfred is a Risk Management Analyst for Consumer and Community Banking at Chase. He is passionate about making a difference, and he shows obvious commitment to 1girl’s work. Alfred is relentlessly pursuing to make an impact on the way people engage in their communities, find their passions, and make their difference. He brings experience with numerous non-profit organizations, and his work within this community will help guide the 1girl Board in a tremendous way. His excitement for our mission is contagious, and we are excited to welcome him as the 1girl Board Secretary.
These two men bring enthusiasm, skills, and knowledge to 1girl that will help us to move our mission forward and reach even more women and girls. Welcome, Petre and Alfred!
