Farewell and Congratulations in Order for CHIME Team Members
Arika Lycan, Director, Corporate Partner Services
The CHIME Foundation has been experiencing some exciting changes in the past month, and we are thrilled to announce some internal transitions in October. Chris Hargrett, currently serving as a Foundation Membership Associate, has taken a promotion as an Education Coordinator and will be working in CHIME’s Events/Education department. He has done great work for our team and Foundation members. We know he will grow and flourish.
While we are sad to see Chris move from the Foundation department, we are excited to announce that Charles Russell has accepted the vacated position, as the newly titled Corporate Partner Services Associate. He has already been part of the CHIME family since January of this year as a Foundation intern. As an intern, Charles was instrumental in the launch of the CHIME Foundation Directory, a major project providing our members better visibility to our Foundation partners. He has quickly come up to speed on Salesforce, our CRM, and has been a driver of our team’s utilization of that tool, enabling better communication to our Foundation partners.
Charles graduated from Northwood University in May of this year with a bachelor’s degree in healthcare administration. During his time at Northwood, he founded a Health Management student organization, which was a forum for students to connect with peers in the same field. In addition to other core functions of the Corporate Partner Services team, Charles will be assisting Foundation partners by scheduling and implementing benefits delivery and supporting the focus group process. We are looking forward to Charles continuing to bring new, entrepreneurial ideas to CHIME and the CHIME Foundation.
