As one of the co-founders of Global Exchange in 1988, Kevin Danaher has inspired, educated and moved to action thousands in the US and around the world.
From fighting corporate bullies head-on to spearheading the US’ largest ‘party with a purpose’ with the Green Festivals, Kevin’s vision, leadership, and charismatic presence are close to the heart of who we all are and what we do at Global Exchange.
With all of our support, Kevin has taken a position with the San Francisco Department of the Environment as the Outreach and Communications Program Manager. It’s an amazing opportunity, and we’ve no doubt that he’ll take the Department to new heights, greening and bettering this already fabulous city. As Kevin said to staff and board, “I look forward to working together to take our global values revolution to the next level.”
Kevin remains on our board of directors, and has retained an office where he continues to collaborate with Global Exchange whenever he is able. And he has also become one of our valued GEMS: a Global Exchange Monthly Sustainer.
Kevin remains an integral member of the Green Festivals team (in New York, Chicago, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, and San Francisco in 2012!) as well. In his own words, “My paycheck will come from a different institution, and my main desk will be in a different place, but my heart and wild ideas will always reside with my baby, Global Exchange.”
Help us wish Kevin well and thank him for his years of leadership with Global Exchange as he blazes new trails! Click here to sign Kevin’s card and leave a note for him. We’ll deliver the card on Valentine's Day as he sets up in his new office.
