As we enter a new year, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support of True Patriot Love and for your role in helping us change the lives of thousands of military and Veteran families over the years. It goes without saying that donors like you make our work possible, and we are truly grateful for your incredible contribution.
A Milestone Year
2019 will be a special year for True Patriot Love as we celebrate 10 years of providing critical support to members of the military, Veterans and their families. None of this would be possible without the incredible team at True Patriot Love that works hard every day to continue our mandate. At the helm of this exceptional team is Bronwen Evans, who has been a remarkable leader to the organization since the very beginning. Through her leadership, True Patriot Love has grown into a successful organization that has helped change the lives of more than 25,000 families.
Welcoming Nick Booth as CEO
As many of you may know, Bronwen has decided to step down as CEO. After a global search of several months, led by the Board of Directors and search firm Spencer Stuart, I’m very excited to announce that Nick Booth, a uniquely qualified senior executive, will be taking over as CEO of True Patriot Love in February 2019.
Nick joins True Patriot Love from The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, where he was founding Chief Executive from 2010 to 2017. In this role, he was responsible for overseeing the philanthropic activities of Their Royal Highnesses, including initiating both the Invictus Games and the Heads Together mental health program. Nick has spent over 30 years in the charitable sector, working in senior roles in both the UK and the USA, including the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Nick is also a senior advisor to Special Olympics International, a Director of the Manchester United Foundation, and advisor on the UK’s new military rehabilitation centre. Nick was appointed to The Royal Victorian Order by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in the 2017 New Year Honours.
I know that Nick will continue Bronwen’s legacy of outstanding leadership and will continue the important work that we started 10 years ago.
Please join me in welcoming Nick and wishing Bronwen success on her next adventure.
