Humane Society Appoints Executive Director

July 1, 2006- Leslie Fisher brings business background and nonprofit experience, along with 12 years of living on the island, to her new role as executive director of the Humane Society of St. Thomas.
Humane Society Board President Joe Aubain said, "We need someone at the helm who can engage the community effectively and manage the transitional phases and growth of the organization successfully. I believe she will be strongly supportive of our employees, volunteers and board, and will concentrate all her energy on achieving the Humane Society's vision of building better relationships between animals and people."
No stranger to the nonprofit sector, Fisher has more than 20 years of volunteer experience with organizations including the Humane Society, but also with Partners for Health, the Navy League, American Red Cross, the St. Thomas-St. John Chamber of Commerce and Junior Achievement.
A graduate of the Indiana University School of Business, Fisher most recently worked with Spotts/Stevens McCoy, managing its Caribbean business development. She also has managed commercial properties as a vice president of TOPA Properties USVI, and is a former marketing coordinator of Texaco Caribbean.
"Leslie Fisher is the right person to lead the Humane Society through this exciting and challenging time," Aubain said.
The Humane Society of St. Thomas is dedicated to helping make animals safer on the island. Led by a membership of 2,300, the organization takes in more than 2,200 cats and dogs annually, of which several hundred are adopted or reunited with their owners.
