For the second time this year, the CBF faced the bittersweet moment of saying thank you and good luck to one of our longtime colleagues who moved out of state for personal reasons.
Ryanne Easley, who has been an integral part of the CBF in many roles, recently moved to New York when her husband Jeff accepted a dream job offer to become assistant general counsel for the Major League Baseball Players Association.
Ryanne has done amazing work for the CBF in many hats over the years, beginning with her serving as a CBF intern in 2000. Later, after she had finished law school and was practicing at Winston & Strawn, Ryanne was an active member of our Young Professionals Board and a leader in many roles there.
More recently, Ryanne joined the CBF in a leadership role on the staff, first as the Director of Grants for four years, and since early 2017 as our Director of Development & Donor Programs.
Ryanne shined in every one of these roles and was the consummate leader by example in all of her work. We know Ryanne will continue to be a star when she settles in to a new role in New York, and we look forward to continuing to work with her.
And as we say thanks and send our good wishes to Ryanne, the CBF also is pleased to welcome Maggie McEldowney as our new Director of Development.
