Delivery Associates is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors have appointed Nick Rodriguez as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Our outgoing CEO, Leigh Sandals, will continue his important contributions to Delivery Associates and our partners as a non-executive director. We are grateful for his years of leadership of Delivery Associates and are pleased that he will continue to work with us as a trusted member of the team moving forward.
Delivery Associates Founder and Chairman, Sir Michael Barber, shared these reflections on Leigh's tenure: "Leigh’s leadership has been truly remarkable. He has turned a young start up into a major organisation working across every continent to assist governments in delivering for their people. He has built our organisation and our reputation through his consistent focus on outcomes, through his wisdom and his hard work and through his absolute commitment to our values. I am delighted that, now he has chosen to step down from the chief exec role, he will continue to make a huge contribution to our work and to ensuring that our work improves people’s lives around the world."
Nick Rodriguez assumes the role of CEO effective 1st July 2020. Nick has been a leader at Delivery Associates since 2016, building our North America practice and playing a pivotal role in helping governments, NGOs, and philanthropies deliver public value in the United States, Canada, and beyond. "I know Nick is excited at the prospect of leading Delivery Associates," Sir Michael Barber said. "He has demonstrated his leadership talent across the length and breadth of the Americas and will now bring that talent to bear on the whole organisation. I very much look forward to working with him in his new role."
"It's an honor to step into this role," said Nick. "The times we're living in are unprecedented, and they ask all of us to rise to new challenges. Every government and society on earth has the same task ahead: to manage through the current moment, to lead the way to recovery, and to rebuild in a way that is more just, more equitable, and more inclusive. Our mission is as important as it's ever been. I'm grateful for the foundation that Leigh and the whole team at Delivery Associates have built that will make it possible to deliver on that mission."
