Kyla Shawyer has been appointed as the permanent CEO of the Resource Alliance, organisers of this week’s International Fundraising Congress in Holland. She had been interim CEO since June 2014.
Over the past year she has met with social impact leaders around the world to help the organisation refocus its commitment to inspire change in the sector. The Resource Alliance’s new Manifesto emphasises its commitment to acting as ‘convenor and curator’ to help the sector take advantage of unprecedented new opportunities born through social media and new technology.

Commenting on the board’s appointment, Vicky Annis, chair of the Resource Alliance, said:
“Over the past year we have been expanding our commitment to include the intellectual and human resources necessary to take advantage of this new era. Kyla’s unique team-building skills and collaborative style make her perfectly suited to lead the Resource Alliance forward”.
“The once stark line between sectors is beginning to blur and traditional models of ‘giving’ are being disrupted by new kinds of social investment—from crowd sourcing to direct personal loans, from social enterprises to cross-sector partnerships. With everything in a state of change, it will be more important than ever to build new kinds of teams and new kinds of collaborations – bringing the best ideas to the table, regardless of where they might originate, and turning them into models our sector can use to thrive.”
