As a board, we are passionate about growing the organization while honoring the original beliefs and mission of TML. When Jason and Angel approached me about a potential transition, I was supportive but committed to ensuring the success of TML’s future in their absence. Jason provided a healthy transition plan, which allowed capacity building, time for selecting a new CEO, mentoring a new CEO while continuing to move the organization forward.
The Board researched and developed a process to ensure the CEO had the combination of leadership, education, character, skills, and experience to lead TML successfully. It was helpful to have a candidate in mind to narrow the focus, and Trina Harris was interviewed by members of a select committee and then in with the entire Board. As the board chair, I was extremely pleased with the feedback and the votes of confidence received for making Trina our next CEO.
We will miss the tremendous leaders we had with Jason and Angel, but we are confident that Trina is the person for the job, and the future for TML is bright.
To you, our supporters, we cannot thank you enough and hope that we can continue to count on your prayers, support, and encouragement in the days ahead. The best is yet to come!
