We’re proud to announce that Paula D. Ashford is joining our team as Executive Director. Paula is a 25-year World Class Technologies Engineer veteran (Guru!) of the corporate sector and specializes in high-level infrastructure and architecture.
She brings with her an exceptional skill-set, a passion for excellence and the same forward thinking approach she executed at ThyssenKrupp IT North America, Mckesson Corporation and The New York Stock Exchange (Just to name a few.).
Paula will head the executive department and be responsible for managing our team and volunteer outreach group. She’ll serve as the main public contact and spokesperson for the organization and will represent Black Animation Network, LLC. in all professional business capacities.
When she wasn’t optimizing technology for some of the leading Fortune 500 Companies, Paula has been an ardent community supporter and volunteer for the nonprofit sector and disaster relief initiatives. She continues that tradition, today.
“When you’re not challenging the ‘status-quo’ you’re accepting it when there’s some much more potential in all of us to take it to a higher level.” – Paula Ashford
Her first official day is February 15, 2018; however, she’s selflessly been paramount in the re-branding, business planning and project management of Black Animation Network, LLC. as a volunteer. She strongly believes and embraces our mission initiative. She’s already played a huge role in our new website launch, BAN Sponsored Nonprofit Outreach and our Re-branding Premier scheduled for February 15, 2018.
Please take a moment to reach-out via our social media sites, registry memberships or in person to introduce yourself, and welcome her to our dynamic organization. Include the new hire’s contact information for reference.
