Emily Collins-Ellis has been appointed CEO of I.G. Advisors, a consultancy working with philanthropists, businesses and nonprofits to create social and environmental impact. Collins-Ellis, previously Managing Direct, will oversee both I.G. Advisors and The Mesa, a new digital platform incubated within the company.
Collins-Ellis succeeds former CEO Alisha Fernandez Miranda, who will remain involved with the organisation as Chair moving forward.
‘I could not be more excited about this next phase of I.G.’s growth and development,’ said Miranda. ‘It’s a true pleasure to give space to this new generation of leaders, and I cannot think of a better person than Emily to take the lead.’
‘It has been a transformative experience to work alongside Alisha and Carlos for the last 6 years, and I continue to be inspired by their vision and commitment to transforming the social impact landscape,’ said Collins-Ellis. ‘I am grateful to be entrusted with this responsibility and excited for the opportunity to lead this amazing team into the next phase of our work and to continue bringing my perspective as a queer woman to the field’.
I.G. Advisors has also recently released a report on Digital Fundraising and Racial Justice, identifying challenges and opportunities for funders and fundraisers. The report is available for download here.
