I am happy to report that Friendship Bridge has seen tremendous growth and success over the last few years because of our team’s strong commitment to the 2011-2013 Strategic Plan. These successes have laid the foundation for our next phase of growth outlined in the 2014-2016 Strategic Plan “Expanding the Bridge”. To achieve these goals, the time has come to create a new position at Friendship Bridge, the Country Director. I am very excited to announce that Astrid Cardona will be promoted to this new position effective immediately.
Astrid joined Friendship Bridge five years ago and has worked closely with me, as a member of the leadership team, to successfully grow Friendship Bridge to where we are today. She worked alongside other members of the leadership team to create the institution’s foundation, stability and focus that now allows us to expand even further and achieve our mission.
Astrid’s new team will include the Credit and Operations Director, Social Performance Manager, Education Manager, Human Resources Manager and Finance Manager (a new position at Friendship Bridge). I am confident in Astrid’s leadership and with this new team. Together we will embark upon the 2014-2016 Strategic Plan under their leadership. Astrid and her team will be instrumental in achieving the ambitious and exciting goals we have set to improve the lives of our clients.
Thank you for your continued support of Friendship Bridge.
