Congratulations to Patricia Massey-Hoke on her first day with Women’s Impact Fund!

Next Stage was honored to manage the search for WIF’s first Executive Director and is thrilled that Patricia will be taking the helm of one of our nation’s largest women’s collective giving organizations.

We so enjoyed working with board members of Women’s Impact Fund who served on the search task force. And according to WIF’s new Board Chair Lisa Miller, the feeling was mutual.

“We are delighted to have partnered with Next Stage for our executive search,” Miller said. “Josh and his team were professional, responsive, and highly adept at identifying our needs and a strong candidate pool.”

Talent acquisition is a core component of Next Stage’s organizational strengthening services, helping nonprofits source exceptional leadership talent to help them take their organization’s forward. Next Stage built on interim executive services provided by LevRidge Resources, which worked to prepare WIF for its first-ever Executive Director.

“Next Stage’s expertise was evident throughout the process — from recruitment to onboarding,” Miller said.
