Bread for the World Welcomes New Vice President for Finance and Administration
Washington, DC, February 28, 2011
Bread for the World is pleased to announce Nancy Rhodes has been named vice president for finance and administration. She brings 20 years of experience as a senior administrator in medical schools, including Duke University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Georgetown University.
Rhodes was drawn to Bread’s Christian philosophy and its reputation for effectively advocating on behalf of hungry and poor people in the United States and abroad. “As a Christian and an avid volunteer, I feel that Jesus has given me a passion for helping the underserved,” she said. “I am honored to join an organization that serves a billion people and look forward to continuing my ministry to those in need through my work at Bread,” she added, referring to Bread’s advocacy on behalf of the world’s nearly 1 billion chronically malnourished people.
Rhodes’ career has been distinguished by tremendous success in financial management, human resources, technology, and the other business functions that are essential to any organization. “Bread for the World is growing in size and impact, and Nancy can help us strengthen the organizational underpinnings for what we do,” said Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World. “People who have worked with Nancy rave about her dedication, problem-solving skills, and ability to help organizations think strategically and innovate.”
Rhodes is a director of the Board of Pensions of the Presbyterian Church (USA), and her husband Paul is the pastor of Bethel Presbyterian Church in North Carolina. They have two 13-year-old sons, Peter and Mikhail.
