Christopoul; Co-Founder of Aspiration.com, Joseph N. Sanberg; and Citigroup Co-Head of Global Mergers & Acquisitions, Mark Shafir.

Perry brings his years of experience managing through change, spotting potential, and nurturing relationships to the 47-year-old nonprofit co-founded by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Senator Robert Taft, Jr., and Sam Beard. His participation on the board will build on Multiplying Good’s history of recognizing individuals who dedicate themselves to serving others and will support its goal of building a community of more than 200,000 engaged and connected change-makers.

“I’m thrilled to join Multiplying Good’s Board of Governors, an organization that is developing leaders and teaching individuals about the importance of service,” said Perry “Multiplying Good makes a significant impact empowering students and helping them build 21st-century skills.
