Silicon Valley Community Foundation (SCVF) has appointed Nicole Taylor as CEO after Emmet Carson was forced out of his post as president and CEO in following an independent inquiry into allegations of bullying and harassment.
Nicole Taylor, currently vice president of the ASU Foundation will join the SVCF on 19 December 2018.
‘I am thrilled to be coming to SVCF and back to Silicon Valley. My roots are in the Bay Area nonprofit and philanthropic sectors, and I have lived in this region most of my adult life, ‘ said Nicole Taylor. ‘Silicon Valley is a region of contrasts, one in which deep social challenges are often masked by the high-profile innovation culture. There is important work to be done in partnership with our donors, our community organizations and our civic and business leaders, and I am excited about the issues and challenges the organization is looking to tackle. I’m honored for the opportunity to join SVCF’s dedicated staff and help further its mission.’
Taylor spent more than 15 years with the East Bay Community Foundation, eventually serving as its president and CEO for six years. She also served on the board of the Federal Reserve of San Francisco for six years and is currently a board member for Common Sense Media and the T. Gary and Kathleen Rogers Family Foundation.
‘Nicole brings a legacy of exceptional leadership and community impact to SVCF,’ said Dan’l Lewin, incoming Chair of SVCF’s Board of Directors and member of the Board Search Committee. ‘She has a genuine connection to improving the lives of those in our local community, and her passion for helping individuals pursue their own philanthropic goals make her an optimal choice to lead our organization.’
