Leadership

It takes a strong, passionate leadership team to guide an organization as multi-faceted and vital as SER National. From our extraordinary President and CEO to the remarkable group of professionals on our Board of Directors, we have assembled a dedicated dream team that not only believes wholeheartedly in our mission, but also has the expertise, commitment and integrity it takes to accomplish it.

Board of Directors

The outstanding people who make up our board of directors may come from many different facets of society – corporations, community-based organizations, governmental entities, academia, etc., but they all have one thing in common: their dedication to empowering people through education, training and employment. Our board provides essential oversight and focused direction to ensure that SER National is fulfilling its mission in the most effective, efficient way possible.
