Back on My Feet names new CEO Katy Sherratt

Sherratt joined Back on My Feet in 2012 as Chief Operating Officer, and assumes the CEO role on June 2

Back on My Feet, the nonprofit that uses running to help people experiencing homelessness, announced Katy Sherratt as Chief Executive Officer on June 2.

“I am honored and excited to step into the CEO position and lead the organization onto its next phase of growth” said Sherratt. “Our mission is significantly powerful:  our members are running to their own personal finish line and with our support tackle their individual barriers to move their lives forward through education programs, employment and housing. We recently reached an important milestone – our 5000th member served. This marks economic impact in the community in the tens of millions of dollars, however, there is so much more to be done. We will continue to strive for even greater impact across our existing 11 markets and beyond.”

“Back on My Feet’s National Board of Directors is excited to welcome Katy Sherratt in the role of Chief Executive Officer” said Jay Shipowitz, Chairman of Back on My Feet’s National Board of Directors and Chairman of Ace Cash Express, Inc. “Her work as COO has guided the organization to greater financial success, significantly increased programmatic impact and built a talent pool and operating model poised for future success. Her years of internal experience with Back on My Feet coupled with her strategic planning and nonprofit consulting background makes her the ideal person to step into the role at this exciting stage in Back on My Feet’s evolution.”
Prior to joining Back on My Feet, Sherratt worked at Accenture in their Strategy Practice with a focus on both for profit and nonprofit clients, where she worked in strategy development, nonprofit management and operating model design.
