“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead the next chapter and work with the Hope for Haiti staff to continue to help catalyze transformative change by creating sustainable communities,” Badenoch said.
Badenoch, a returned Peace Corps Volunteer, managed international programs in Haiti, Nicaragua, and Malawi for buildOn for 10 years. Previous to his international work, Badenoch earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics from the University of Arizona and a Master’s Degree in International Development Studies from the George Washington University. He is also fluent in French and Creole.
“We are confident that the combination of Skyler’s commitment to our mission, experience working in the region, and proven fundraising track record uniquely qualify him to grow upon the foundation that has been put in place for over 28 years,” said Hope for Haiti Board Chair and former CEO Tiffany Kuehner.
