Nine New Members Join Expect Miracles Foundation's Board in 2021

Expect Miracles Foundation is proud to announce the addition of nine new members to its Board of Directors in 2021. These leaders represent a range of industries and backgrounds and share a commitment to helping the Foundation thrive. Though their backgrounds are diverse, they share a vision for growth and impact.

“In our mission to save lives and improve outcomes for people and families impacted by cancer, the Foundation’s greatest asset is our Board of Directors. These dedicated supporters lead by example in coming together to have a lasting ripple effect to help people. With the recent retirement of long-term Directors Ed Addvensky of ICE Data Service, Scott Brady of Columbia Threadneedle Investments, Ben Huneke of Morgan Stanley, Scott FitzGerald of State Street, and Harvey Rosen of Fidelity, who helped us tremendously grow our impact over the last 6 years, we are extremely fortunate to appoint new Directors from not only the buy, sell and service sides of the financial industry, but also from the technology and health care industries,” shares Frank Strauss, Founder and Chairman of the Board.

Joining the Board from broker dealers are David Rosen, Managing Director at Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, and Christine Chigounis, Director and Senior Relationship Manager at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Joining from asset managers are Kirsten Pickens, Managing Director and Co-Head US Distribution for FS Investments, and Thom Jones, Head of Strategic Relations & DCIO for Columbia Threadneedle Investments. Joining the Board from financial industry service providers are John Lunny, co-founder and CEO of Vestmark, Steve Margolis, an Executive Director with Donnelley Financial Solutions (DFIN), and Martin Sullivan, a Senior Vice President at State Street.

With the appointments of Jennifer Gottlieb, Global President of Real Chemistry, and Mike Small, CEO of Sitel Americas, Expect Miracles Foundation is in a strong position to grow and scale its impact. Steve Bandrowczak, Vice-Chairman of the Expect Miracles Foundation Board and President and Chief Operations Officer at Xerox, says, “Expect Miracles Foundation has had great success bringing the financial services industry together for over two decades, providing opportunities for networking and business development while raising millions of dollars for cancer research and care. We’re thrilled to be leveraging those successes and expanding into technology and healthcare.” Sitel is a global leader in end-to-end customer experience (CX) products and solutions, and Real Chemistry is one of the most prominent healthcare marketing, technology and communications firms in the industry.

Despite the challenges of 2020 and having to pivot beyond in-person events, Expect Miracles Foundation emerged into 2021 a stronger organization. With the addition of this group of new Directors, the organization is looking forward to a bright year ahead and continued growth.
