Sheila Bravo named DANA president and CEO
The board of the Delaware Alliance for Nonprofit Advancement (DANA) is pleased to announce that Sheila Bravo has been named as the organization’s new president and chief executive officer. She comes to DANA after spending five years as executive director of the Rehoboth Art League.
“We are thrilled to have Sheila on-board and leading this organization. Her extensive experience in nonprofit, for-profit, and academia shown through in the selection process,” said Bill Allan, chairman of the board of directors. “Sheila’s breadth of experience, passion for the nonprofit sector, and desire to move DANA into the future make her an excellent choice to be our next president.”
Bravo began her career in advertising, then in brand-leadership positions launching new products, expanding businesses internationally, and developing strategic growth plans for brands such as Vlasic pickles, Godiva chocolatier, Corelle dinnerware, Corningware ovenware and Pyrex bakeware. She transitioned to provide strategic planning, new product, and leadership consulting services to mid-size companies and nonprofit organizations in a variety of industries.
Bravo has a PhD in organizational leadership from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, an MBA in International Business from Thunderbird School of Global Management, and a bachelor’s degree in business and languages from Millersville University.
Bravo will begin as President and CEO on Aug. 31. The search for DANA’s new CEO began in April after Chris Grundner announced his departure.
