Oct 19, 2021   |  By Sam Schaeffer

We are pleased to announce that Samra Haider has been promoted to the newly created position of President at CEO. This promotion is a recognition of the leadership that Samra has displayed for many years, stewarding the organization through two strategic plans and growth into 12 states across the country.

As President, Samra will work closely with our partners in government, philanthropy, and the re-entry community at large. She will continue to oversee CEO’s Program, Policy, and organizational strategy. Samra will also take on a strategic, cross-organizational leadership role to support CEO’s growth.

“I am thrilled to begin in this new role of President at such an exciting time for CEO,” notes Samra. “We had ambitious plans to grow the organization when I came to CEO in 2014, and today we operate in 31 cities and serve nearly 10,000 people a year.

Despite the continued challenges justice-impacted individuals face, I am confident in CEO’s ability to scale programming that can improve the economic and social mobility of people with lived experience.”
