Valley Leadership President and CEO Christy Moore will be leaving her post at Valley Leadership, and the development organization is now beginning a new search in anticipation of her departure.

A selection committee has been appointed by Valley Leadership to start the search for its next leader, who will work to build the association’s programs.

The exact date for Moore’s departure has not been determined, as she wants to ensure a smooth leadership transition.

Moore joined Valley Leadership in 2012, and worked with more than 250 local leaders through the association’s Valley Leadership Institute. She launched Valley Leadership Advance, a program designed for leaders to help them learn the ins and outs of civic engagement in the state.

“Over the past five years, I have had the opportunity to meet and work alongside the most talented leaders of Arizona,” said Moore. “I am extremely proud of our accomplishments, and it’s time to share my talents with Arizona in other ways. I will continue to live by Valley Leadership’s mission of strengthening and transforming communities, and look forward to staying connected to all of the amazing alumni.”

Moore also launched LeaderLink, a Valley Leadership initiative that connects servant leaders to nonprofits seeking board members.

She also successfully convened a CEO Circle, populated with Arizona’s top thought leaders that resulted in introducing design thinking into Valley Leadership’s curriculum, a partnership with President Dr. Michael Crow and the Arizona State University’s Office of University Initiatives.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors and all Valley Leadership Alumni, I thank Christy for her passionate service to Valley Leadership,” Jenny Holsman Tetreault said. “Christy has a great love for Arizona and for moving our great state forward. This was evident in the work she brought to VL.”
