Kathy Lawless and Ann AyersMarch 30, 2015 - Kathy Lawless, a Board Member of The Leadership Investment, will step-in as interim President and CEO of the organization on Monday, March 30, 2015, as we continue our search for a new President and CEO.

Kathy Lawless is recognized in the greater Denver area for her leadership in change management, project and program management in the financial services area with companies such as First Data Corporation, Western Union and Experis Finance. She has in-depth experience translating strategy into action and in leading teams to solve complex business and client needs.

Kathy joined Board of The Leadership Investment in 2009 and has since played an integral role in our organization, chairing various strategic initiatives and events, driving membership conversations, and serving as Board Chair from 2011-12. “Kathy knows our organization intimately and has a unique ability to foster outstanding results within teams, build strong coalitions, and make sound strategic decisions. Her leadership is exactly what we need during this transition,” offered Ann Ayers, Board Chair.

The Board and staff team are thrilled that Kathy is bringing her passion, leadership and strategic vision to The Leadership Investment as we work to ignite and accelerate the change to gender balanced leadership across Colorado and beyond.

Kathy will serve as the interim leader until a new President and CEO is named, which is expected to happen in the second quarter of 2015.
