Meeting the Executive Director

Today, I had my first opportunity to meet the relatively recently named executive director of Sharp Dressed Man.  It was an incredible first meeting.  She has a background in interior design which led her to realize her interest in marketing and branding.  She has done a lot of work with not-for-profits.  She moved to Baltimore from the midwest and connected with Sharp Dressed Man through a combination of events for her husband and wanting to volunteer.  And now she has the goal of making Sharp Dressed Man the best organization it can be.

  • Working with partner organizations to send men as referrals
  • Working with other partner organizations to provide skills that the men need to re-enter the workforce (like job development) in addition to better clothes
  • Having a vision to expand the organization to other cities

I was able to provide several connections to help to move the organization along.  We will see where it goes.  I am looking forward to helping her directly and raising money for the organization.
