After a long and thoughtful planning process A Window Between Worlds is excited to welcome Audrey Salzburg as our new Chief Executive Officer (CEO)!
Audrey came to A Window Between Worlds in 2007 during Cathy Salser’s maternity leave. In Cathy’s absence the organization not only remained strong but grew significantly. Since Audrey’s arrival AWBW’s budget has more than quadrupled and our programs have grown exponentially and expanded into new service populations.
Inspired by the example set by Father Greg Boyle at Homeboy Industries, Cathy Salser will remain as AWBW’s Founder and Executive Director. With Audrey’s guidance, Cathy is looking forward to the continuation of her vision that has been the foundation for AWBW’s last 25 years.
With over 20 years of experience in the corporate and nonprofit arenas, Audrey possesses the skills and expertise necessary to lead AWBW through its next stage of development. She formerly served as Co-Creative Director of Young and Rubicam International, where she managed all aspects of advertising for major clients such as Xerox, Citibank, Levi’s and Pepsi in fourteen countries across Western Europe.
At AWBW she has stewarded countless key relationships at the corporate, foundation and individual level that have facilitated our growth over the past decade, providing the staffing and technology infrastructure that has enabled us to support 1,000 Leaders at 350 sites throughout the country. Her strategic thinking, vision, joy, and openness have brought us to this significant moment and are exactly what we need as we begin this next chapter together.
Audrey is thrilled to continue working with AWBW’s family of supporters in this new capacity to create and solidify the systems and staffing to achieve our long-term vision.
