Atlanta| Jan 28, 2020

Points of Light is pleased to announce the addition of three leaders to its board of directors. Each individual shares Points of Light’s vision of creating healthy communities in vibrant, participatory societies, and provides a complement to the current board.

The newly appointed members of the Points of Light board of directors are:

  • Emad Bibawi, New York advisory market leader at KPMG, is a risk assurance solution partner with over 25 years of experience in Europe and the U.S. leading complex client relationships, and delivering internal audit and risk management engagements. Emad also functioned as the chief financial officer for a high-tech start-up, and serves as a board member for SeriousFun Children’s Network which was launched in 1988 by founder Paul Newman;
  • George A. Kalogridis, president, segment development and enrichment at Disney Parks, Experiences and Products, is responsible for the development of strategic and operational business initiatives while developing and scaling best practices at Disney sites worldwide. In addition to leveraging his nearly 50 years of experience to champion segment initiatives in diversity and inclusion, George has long been active in the Central Florida community, serving on the board of several area nonprofits;
  • Susan Molinari, a strategist and former vice president of Google public affairs and former member of Congress, developed a strong record of bipartisanship and effectiveness on issues ranging from transportation and the budget, to child abuse and human rights. In addition to numerous board appointments, including Harvard University Institute of Politics at the Kennedy School and the Toyota North America Diversity Board, Susan was selected as a member of the Sine Institute’s 2020 class of Fellows and Distinguished Lecturers at American University.

“We are excited to welcome Emad, George and Susan to the Points of Light board of directors,” said Natalye Paquin, president and CEO of Points of Light. “They bring both leadership and expertise in their respected fields, but more importantly, they’re committed to improving communities and creating a world where it is easy for every individual to create change. Their joining our board shows their passion for creating a world where it is impossible for people to sit on the sidelines.”

The new cohort of board members began their service on Jan. 1, 2020, and will serve a three-year term.
