Hands On Charlotte (HOC) has selected Eric Law as its new executive director, effective May 1.
Law, a former HOC board member who most recently served as director of development for Classroom Central takes over from current executive director and co-founder Lisa Quisenberry, who announced her intention to retire last year.
Law is well-known in Charlotte nonprofit circles. In addition to his most recent position at Classroom Central, he has held management positions at International House, United Family Services and Foundation For The Carolinas. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Wake Forest University and a master’s degree from Duke University.
“Eric brings great development, programming and organizational experience to Hands On Charlotte,” said Sara Collins, chair of the HOC board of directors. “We are so pleased that he will join the staff at this pivotal time in the organization’s history, as we conclude our 20th anniversary year and begin to plan for the future of volunteer engagement in Charlotte.”
Quisenberry plans to remain active in the Charlotte nonprofit and civic community. She is currently a member of the steering committee for DVA Charlotte, a nonpartisan group of women organizing to support the Charlotte in 2012 Host Committee for the Democratic National Convention, and previously chaired the board of Habitat for Humanity Charlotte. She plans to join HOC’s Advisory Council in 2013.
“Lisa’s impact on Hands On Charlotte is immeasurable and the board is incredibly grateful for her dedicated service,” said Collins. “Through her leadership and dedication, Hands On Charlotte has helped make Charlotte a national model for civic commitment and volunteer service.”
