organizational announcement

This week Community Vision welcomes Chris Nickles as the interim Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Chris joins us from vcfo, a financial and HR consulting firm, where she works as a Consulting CFO and supports organizations with strategic financial objectives and operational performance. Chris brings more than 15 years of experience as a CFO and Accountant to our executive management team.

Of course, this welcome comes with a farewell to Lea Salem, who has been Community Vision’s CFO for more than 15 years. Many of our investors and donors have worked with Lea over the years and may be aware that she has been a part of several eras of change and growth at Community Vision, and has been integral in building the organization into what it is today. We offer gratitude for her years of service and wish her well in the opportunities ahead.

Community Vision’s leadership, compliance, and accounting teams have spent the last several months preparing for Lea’s departure, in order to ensure a smooth transition. If you have questions about the transition, please direct them to President, Catherine Howard or VP of External Relations, Sabrina Kelley. If you have any questions related directly to your investment with Community Vision please contact either Staff Accountant, Paul Dong at or Investor Relations Associate, Eddy Lopez Jr. at
