Finishing Up My Time at PULSE

After a decade with PULSE, I wanted to let you know that I am finishing up my time with PULSE in late Spring 2020.  I leave on the best of terms with a solid Board, experienced staff, incredible alumni, and a great group of PULSE fellows and nonprofit partners. After PULSE, I’ll be driving cross-country with my family this summer before returning to Pittsburgh. 

I am extremely proud of all that PULSE staff, board, fellows, alumni, and nonprofit partners have accomplished during the past ten years and hold dear to my heart the relationships I’ve built during my time as Executive Director. 

I want to give my deepest gratitude to all who have been so supportive of the organization and of me personally over the years: staff, board members, nonprofit partners, funders, and, of course, our PULSE fellows and alumni. Without you, the organization would not be as strong and vibrant as it is. I am so honored to have been the leader of this incredible organization and will watch with much excitement and anticipation as it continues to fulfill its mission. 

Over the next several months, the PULSE Board will be conducting a thorough search to find PULSE’s next Executive Director. It is their priority to find a dynamic leader with a true passion for PULSE’s mission: To cultivate a community of young servant leaders to transform Pittsburgh. We will share the job announcement soon and ask for your help in identifying candidates who can help PULSE take its next steps. Thank you.

Chris Cooke, Executive Director, PULSE
