Thank You, Barbara Benisch!

21 Jun

The staff and board of the YWCA of Asheville want to extend a special thank you to Barbara Benisch. Since January, Barbara has served as Interim Executive Director of the YWCA of Asheville. As a member of the Board of Directors, she saw the job description for the Interim Director and said she knew that job was for her! She interviewed for the position, and upon being hired, resigned from the Board of Directors.

Barbara is the owner of Catalyst Consulting which works with non-profit organizations to identify and meet current and future challenges to success. Before forming Catalyst Consulting, Barbara was the Director of Development and Communications at Penland School of Crafts. Tami Ruckman, Director of Development, says “Barbara has been affirming, creative, and steady. The YW is in great shape, but Barbara has helped us smooth some rough edges and get ready for our new Executive.” Barbara finishes her Interim position today, and will re-take a seat on the Board of Directors.
