Snyder named chair of Nonprofit Roundtable

Russ SnyderRuss Snyder, Volunteers of America Chesapeake president and CEO, has been selected as chairman of The Nonprofit Roundtable of Greater Washington.

Since joining Volunteers of America Chesapeake in January 2009, Snyder has led the successful turnaround and growth of a $23-million, 650-employee human services nonprofit serving more than 11,000 vulnerable men, women and children in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia, which includes assisting more than 1,000 people move into permanent housing each year. Snyder is an aggressive business leader who also has a history of cultivating enduring business relationships.

In just two years, Snyder went from board member to treasurer and has now been selected as chairman of the Nonprofit Roundtable Board of Directors.
