Corporate Leader Pournader Signs on as Spokesperson for Historic Non-Profit
PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Liberty Lutheran Services (LLS), a century-old non-profit organization with over 1,100 employees dedicated to providing human care services throughout Eastern Pennsylvania, announced Nicholas N. Pournader, Ph.D. has been named Spokesperson and is assisting the organization with key strategic planning and fund raising initiatives. Mr. Pournader is the Chief Operating Officer and CFO of Grant & Eisenhofer PA, a leading class-action securities litigation firm that represents institutional investors worldwide.
"I began supporting Lutheran Children and Family Service in 2005, as a donor, and am a firm believer in their mission and purpose," said Pournader. In the process of learning about LCFS, one of Liberty's affiliate organizations, he discovered that it shared his passion for helping displaced families, at-risk children as well as economic and political refugees. Pournader himself is a political refugee from Iran whose family immigrated to the United States when he was a child.
During the past year, Pournader has spent time learning more about all of Liberty's operations from Luanne B. Fisher, PhD, President and CEO of Liberty. "Nick's expertise and knowledge of the for-profit world, coupled with his awareness of our organizations vision and subsequent needs, is taking us to the next level of performance and service delivery. Nick has been a blessing to our organization in so many ways-not only because of his business background and connections but also his sensitivity and interest in our clients' well-being."
"I am very impressed by Liberty's strategic plan, management, and culture of service and accountability. The strategic plan clearly lays out a comprehensive approach to fulfill each objective and has a systematic approach for articulating and reporting the progress and outcomes. The sense of personal accountability and results are engrained in the culture of the organization. Based on my experience, this is an uncommon accomplishment in the non-profit world."
Known for his skills as a strategic and transformational leader, Pournader views his corporate leadership experience and social activism blending well in a way that will help foster corporate and community awareness of the important work of Liberty.
