The Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT), The Premier Association of Financial Professionals, is pleased to announce the appointment of India Alexis Ehioba, CFRE, to Executive Director of the MDRT Foundation.
The MDRT Foundation, the philanthropic arm of MDRT, was created in 1959 to provide MDRT members with a means to give back to their communities. Since its inception, the Foundation has donated more than $27 million to charities in 80 countries and all 50 U.S. states.
As Executive Director, Ehioba will oversee the Foundation’s administration, ensure the fulfillment of its strategic plan and create long-term fund development initiatives. Most recently, Ehioba held the position of chief development officer at Helping Hand Center, an organization that serves more than 500 adults and children with disabilities. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications and public relations from the Ohio State University and will complete her master’s in nonprofit administration at North Park University, Chicago, in May 2012.
“We are proud and pleased to have India leading the team that serves the MDRT Foundation,” said Stephen P. Stahr, MDRT Chief Executive Officer. “Her vast experience working in the nonprofit sector and her expertise as a manager and fundraiser will help the MDRT Foundation’s leadership and staff achieve the mission of the organization at the highest level.”
