The Wall Street Journal profiled Cynthia Remec’s non-profit board practice in their Bids and Offers Column.
The following is an excerpt from the article entitled “A Helping Hand for Nonprofits’ Boards”
In the wake of September 11, charity has taken on new importance for Wall Street… Cynthia T. Remec….[is] acting as a go-between-for no fee—for charities and nonprofits looking for high-powered investment bankers to serve on their boards.
“My goal has been to make the board placement process less clubby and more democratic,” she said, while getting more information to the bankers about which charities need high-level help. “It makes no sense for them to be licking envelopes for benefit invitations when they can provide value in a much more meaningful way.”
