The new Executive Director of Loaves & Fishes will present the Oct. 21 program on her organization at the meeting in the Dilworth Neighborhood Grille.

Tina Postel

Tina Postel, a recent transplant to Charlotte from Billings, Montana, is the new Executive Director. Tina served as Chief Executive Officer for the Billings Family
YMCA for the last five years. A native of Des Moines, Iowa, Tina received a BS in Psychology from the University of Iowa. In December 2007, she completed her Masters Degree in Organizational Leadership for Nonprofit Management from Lewis University in Romeoville, Illinois.

She has spent her entire professional career working and volunteering in the not-for-profit field. With a passion for connecting donors to broad community impact she is an expert in the field of philanthropy. Having worked for a wide variety of nonprofit organizations including large national organizations like the YMCA and the United Way in addition to smaller, independent organizations like Orchard Place Residential Treatment Center for Children and the Rialto Square Theatre, Tina knows that communities best thrive when nonprofits of all sizes rally together behind issues along with corporations, businesses, schools, government and individuals.

In addition to her leadership role at Loaves & Fishes, Tina is a nationally recognized speaker and trainer. Tina presents on the topics of team building, strategic planning, organizational development and customer service. She inspires and challenges audiences everywhere to “do more and be more…” Outside of her professional responsibilities, Tina is an active community member participating with several civic and volunteer groups including Rotary and Junior
